Summary A look at the iconic 1970s fashion chain and the influence the designs of the 70s have on today's fashion. Bus Stop was one of the key fashion stores of the 1970s. In this book, Lee Bender, the founder of Bus Stop, looks at how the shops and their distinctive fashion designs developed and how fashion today is influenced by this era of design. The result is a book that will appeal not only to people interested in the fashions of the 1970s, but also to current students interested in developing their own lines and working with vintage designs
