Great 80s Fashion

Yesterday, we had great fun, both here and on my Facebook page, making fun of some ugly clothes from the 1980s. Lest you get the idea that I think all 80s fashion is awful, today I want to show you some fabulous clothing that I wouldn't hesitate to offer for sale on my website if I found it.

Pale pink silk organza coat by Thierry Mugler, 1982.

Strapless purple evening gown by Christian Dior, 1983.

Classic pant suit by Chanel, 1983, Lagerfeld's first year.

Kind of kooky, but kind of awesome. Bernard Perris, 1985.

Tropical seduction by Yves St. Laurent, 1985.

Gown by Tan Giudicelli, an Asian designer who went on to work in perfume, 1987.

Christian LaCroix, 1987.

Givenchy, 1987.
