106. 1965 John Warden

Bob Dylan wrote and sang “For the times they are a-changin’.”, which may seem cliche now, but then, well, it was the news. We have already met Marilyn Brooks, a solo act in the making, with her own way of seeing and selling, unlike anyone at the time, and now John Warden, another first in Canada, an untested young man with his name on a label, backed by a large manufacturer, doing ready-to-wear. Vogue’s Diana Vreeland called it a “youth quake” and she was right. Young men and women dancing to the new beat of their music, their way.
