This photograph is by fashion photographer John French. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s he shot the latest fashions for magazines and newspapers, and he usually photographed affordable, high-street ranges that most people would be able to buy.

The models shown here sport work and casual wear, and are easily dated to the 1960s because of their hair, which is parted at one side.
