Photo Friday: no dress down Friday here

Photo Friday 1To mark the start of London Fashion Week (AW13), today’s Photo Friday is an invitation to the ‘Dress Parade’ held in 1953 at Liverpool College of Art.  This “parade of dresses and millinery” showcased the work of the fashion students at the end of the academic year, like the fashion show element of the degree shows do today.  The first ‘Dress parade’ took place at Liverpool College of Art in 1946 and we have invitations and programmes for a large number of ‘Dress Parades’, ‘Dress Shows’ and ‘Fashion Shows’, from 1949 to the 1980s in the Liverpool Art School Archives held in the library in our Special Collections and Archives.
