Youthquaker (vogue magazine 1965-1975)

What Does Youthquaker Mean?
Youthquake was a 1960s fashion, musical and cultural movement. The term was coined by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland in 1963. London was the center of this movement. Teenagers dominated the fashion and music scene. The fashion of youthquake was fun, spirited and youthful – miniskirts and jumpsuits. Poster girls of the youthquakers such as Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, Veruschka, and Edie SedgwickVogue.[were often on the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue.
Mary Quant and Betsey Johnson were named as some of the fashion designers at the helm of the youthquake movement. Andy Warhol and his muses were also seen as part of the youthquake movement.[1] From Wikipedia

What is Youthquaker the Blog? Put into cold, simple terms, Youthquakers is a chronological record of UK and US Vogue, betweens the dates January 1965 and December 1969. The reason for these dates? It’s my favourite era and, from a purely practical point of view, as a collector you have to have a cut-off point else you’ll end up with Vogues from every generation and no closer to completion (which, on reflection sounds quite nice really!). Youthquakers is also to serve as a sort of visual reference guide to vintage Vogue magazines, featuring scans of photoshoots. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time, if only for my own benefit. Each time I open a 1960s issue of Vogue, it becomes a tiny bit more fragile as the paper starts to crack and tear with age. This will maybe prolong the life of my magazines for a bit longer.
