Babylon Cartel’s Fall 2011 line, The Varsity centers around the educational advancement of American teenagers during the 1960s. We drew our inspiration from photos of all races enjoying college life. American cultured shifted as children of a COLORS, and backgrounds were awarded with equal opportunities to advanced their education post High School. The sixties were the age of youth, as 70 million children from the post-war baby boom became teenagers and young adults. The movement away from the conservative fifties continued and eventually resulted in revolutionary ways of thinking and real change in the cultural fabric of American life. No longer content to be images of the generation ahead of them, young people wanted change. The changes affected education, values, lifestyles, laws, and entertainment. Many of the revolutionary ideas which began in the sixties are continuing to evolve today.
