So I digress… we’ve been digging up (and ON!) old Sunset Strip found footage lately and thought you might appreciate this supergrooviness of the video below… ‘cuz it’s a gas. (And by the way… who else misses seeing the giant Rocky and Bullwinkle rotate in front of Dudley Do-Right’s Emporium!?)
Belinda and Charles Lange opened their boutique on the Sunset Strip one block west of Pandora’s Box, next door to The Fifth Estate in 1966. During the Summer of Love. Belinda, the designer, brought to Hollywood custom made micro mini skirts, backless, bra-less, cut on the bias knit dresses. After trying on any one of the Belinda designed dresses, the customer could order another one in any fabric or color and pick it up within an hour because everything was made there at the shop. Featured in Vogue Magazine and modeled by Cher. Clients included singers Cass Elliot, Tina Turner, Carole King, Petula Clark, Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli.
