In the 1960s and 70s, social unrest from the civil rights movement, feminism, and anti-Vietnam War protestors affected mainstream fashion. During this time the fashion industry looked for countries where manufacturing was cheaper that in the U. S. There were also societal concerns over energy sources and the environment. Dr. Spillman will talk about clothing in the 1960s and 70s with a general look at the clothing styles and the societal changes that prompted changes in dress. In addition, she will look at the “Style Tribes” that emerged during this time such as Hippies, mods, and punks. Kim Miller-Spillman is an Associate Professor in Retailing and Tourism Management in the Merchandising area. She teaches courses on the social and psychological aspects of dress and her research interests include dress for historic reenactors.
