Welsh Fashions

In 1970 the cream of young Welsh fashion designers gathered together at the Hilton Hotel, London, to put on a show. They were celebrating Wales in London Week. The Welsh fashionistas included Mary Quant, Margot Shakespeare, Clive, Edward Lloyd, Liz Morgan and Pauline Wynne Jones. Much of their work utilised traditional Welsh fabrics such as pure new wool flannels, tweeds and tapestries. The above outfit (black and red culottes/gaucho pants and black flannel top) from the show was designed by the fab Pauline Wynne Jones.
