A cute little ad showcasing a range of watches at K-Mart (some looking remarkably like copies of Swatches...). This came from the October issue of Dolly from 1987.

Hang Ten - 1982 style. It was cool to see that they weren't just a surf/beach brand back then, and they actually did have more formal separates like the white shirt red pant combo. I don't think they're still stocked in Australia any longer, but I'm sure if they were the designs wouldn't be as cool as these!

I absolutely adore this advertisement from the Australian retail clothing chain Ojay. In the early 80's editions of Dolly, Ojay fashions featured quite heavily and their fashions were cute and du jour. It was quite sad to hear recently that they have been put in the hands of administrators (meaning they're closing) but it's kind of not that hard to see why. Unfortunately I didn't find their fashions to be all that exciting lately - I guess they were targeting an older demographic - I just wish they would have stayed as cool as this ad!

Sticking to my pledge of doing at least an image a day - here's an advertisement for the clothing brand Lindy Lane. Their clothes and ads were featured quite a lot in Dolly - especially from 1986 onwards and I just thought this ad was eye catching. Enjoy!

Following from the previous post, I found another fabulous Brian Rochford ad - this time from 1986. I love the pop art influenced wind cheater with the freestyle Reebok aerobics sneakers (I managed to buy a pair of similar ones a few years ago when they re-issued them but with a lilac trim).

I have had a bit of a hiatus from regular posting as I've had a bit of a dry spell with the magazines I have, but thanks to a lovely person contacting me, I now have every issue besides about two from 1980 through until 1987 and I have so many issues to pore through!
So here is a little post to tide you over, with the lovely Alison Brahe modelling for Brian Rochford Australia. I have quite a few pics of Alison Brahe and I'm thinking it might be time for another Alison post soon!

There is nothing like 80's sportswear! This photo spread photographed by Graham Shearer features the stunning Collette and Julie Savona modelling layers of pastel sweats in contrasting colours with gorgeous complimentary make-up by Debbie Carson to go with it. And of course when one wants to work up a sweat then it is only customary to wear a full face of make-up isn't it!
