Graphic Leg Art ~ Then and Now

January 19, 2014

The real surge in fashion legwear started in the 1960’s but did not become mainstream until much later. When I became a hosiery buyer in the early 80’s, the stage was set but the show was just beginning. Today, no wardrobe is complete with out a leg statement. These are bold modern graphics from today and yesteryear.  It’s the message more than the mentor that counts.
