Hippie Fashion / Hippie Culture

Hippie Culture
Hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that arose in the Unitied States during the mid 1960's & spread to other countries around the world. The word "hippie" came from hipster and was initially used to describe Beatnik who had moved into New York city's Greenwich village and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The origin of the terms hip and hop are uncertain though by the 1940's both had become part of African-Americian jive slang and meant sophisticated currently fashionable; fully up-to date. Hippies created their own communities, listened to Psychedelic music, embraced the sexual revolution and used drugs such as Cannabis, LSD and Psilocybin mushrooms to explore altered states of consciousness.

Adaptation of Hippie Culture

Hippie fashions and values had a major effect on culture, influencing popular music, television, film, literature and the arts. Since the 1960's many ascpects of hippie culture have been assimilated by mainstream society. The religions and cultural diversity espoused by the hippies has gained wide spread acceptance and Eastern philosophy and spitirtual concepts have reached a larger audience. The hippie legacy can be observed in contemporary culture in myriad forms, including health food, music festivals, contemporary sexual mores and even the cyberspace revolution.
