Talent was the prerequisite to success in the 1960s. For the first time ever in any fashion era, the young became the leaders of fashion. They led with new and radically innovative fashion styles, with little girl woman androgynous looks for women that swept away the sophisticated sweater girls of the early sixties. The picture of Twiggy in the header defines her as the epitome of a sixties baby doll woman. This influenced the design side of society by encouraging outrageous and "loud" art and design works to be "the in thing" bright loud, graffiti like works were in order as rainbow and florescent coleus as well as diverse individual designs were becoming more and more “in” as the hippie culture of love peace and harmony was growing bigger. Fashion influenced 60's design in a big way making designers want to use big, bright coleus to get their messages across.
Allot of the designs and art during this time reflected love, piece send harmony. So these colours appealed to people of this era and help the messages of artists to be displayed.
