More evidence of the fashion apocalypse that was the 1970s!
“I don’t know what they do to your feet but the manufacturers and the fashion editors say, ‘Not to worry, they look great‘”.
(This must be how the brainwashing started).
A vintage documentary from the archives of British Pathé, rounded up some Londoners for a fashion report on the terrifying and “highly dangerous” platform shoe trend of the day…
*That hand-0ver-the-eyes moment when the pregnant lady says: “I’ve got some higher ones on and I’m expecting and I keep falling over.”
And when the reporter asks a young London hipster:
“What kind of people buy them?”
And he responds with:
“Well, all sorts … the manager of the drug store because he mixes with trendy people.”
Did anyone make sense in the seventies?
