MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Colour and Black & White Photographs. 317 pages In the 1970s-1990s, with limited material resources, an abundance of originality and style, and seemingly unlimited creative energy, a group of young people helped transform the cultural landscape of inner Sydney. They recast the image of Australian fashion, linked with fashion and identity politics, established the‘look’ of the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras, and reclaimed the urban. Sally Gray describes a restlessly creative, culturally influential group of friends and collaborators as they moved to and from Melbourne, Paris, Sydney, London, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, New York, and places in between. Four friends in particular form her central narrative: fashion designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson and artists Peter Tully and David McDiarmid. Their creative trajectories and interactions, their collaborations, passion and politics, continue to resonate in the present.
