Groupies burst onto the scene alongside the rise of female and sexual liberation of the sixties and seventies. Fuelled by passion, they chased after a life less-ordinary, a life full of fun, excitement and wonder.

This movement inspired one of my fave films, Almost Famous, which captures the essence of what it was to be a groupie at the time. I love the style, LA in the late sixties, the sheer passion of these brazen, bohemian women who lived on the fringe in their quest to get closer to the men they adored and the movement they worshipped.
