Vintage Film and Fashion

'The count is back with an eye for London's hot pants.'

Kings Road, Chelsea, 1972.
Dracula A.D. 1972 is highly worth watching simply for the interior design and fashion. Although, I'm sure you won't be able to resist Johnny Alucard.
Favourite shots - the Cavern coffee bar, Johnny's pad, and the party featuring "Stoneground". Rosemary Burrows was in charge of wardrobe but I'm not sure of any exact designer (Thea Porter & Ossie Clark, perhaps).
You can check out a scene from the party here.

'Poor Nell, you look like Death.'.
Of course she does Theo, you're the one dressed in Mary Quant!
Quant did the costumes for one of my other film favourites, The Haunting (1963).
