I had myself a little future panic this afternoon, concerning university and other things. I felt the need to calm myself with biscuits and films so sat down and watched Pretty In Pink.
I love the 80's and did a 20 minute version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for my A Level Drama Exam that was set in the glorious 1980's and one of the things i loved the most about doing it was designing and sourcing the costumes. (I loved it so much I'm hoping to direct//creative direct a full length version some time soon)
Now, the 80's is sometimes referred to as the time that fashion forgot, and i may not completely channel the early Madonna look myself, but i love the styles of the time. There were so many and i love the extravagance and glamour and eccentricity of it all.
These are some stills from Pretty In Pink that show some of the best outfits.
I ADORE DUCKIE, SO MUCH!
And it's not just this film i love. I'm a massive John Hughes fan.
The Breakfast Club is another favourite.
And Weird Science too.
Anyone else out there love the 80's?
I know i'm not the only one : )
