If you've ever marveled over the looks rocked by legendary 1960s rock bands like The Beatles, Cream and The Move, then you're a fan of Marijke Koger-Dunham. The world-renowned Dutch artist was responsible for dressing these artists and in 1967 designed all of the clothing sold at the Beatles' jaw-dropping Apple Boutique in London. This was followed by the launch of her own clothing line called Astraflash, which was sold at both Saks and Nordstroms.
A member of the design collective and band The Fool, Koger-Dunham also lent her psychedelic aesthetic to album artwork, including the inside sleeve of the wildly popular Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club record. In short, she lived and breathed the '60s pop movement.
To honor this prolific artist, Sonos Studio on La Brea has curated Koger-Dunham's first-ever career retrospective. The exhibition ends this Sunday, July 22 and features her original fashion sketches, as well as costumes, paintings, drawings, prints and lithographs from the aforementioned Beatles Apple Boutique. Flip through the gallery for a taste of the show, and be sure to catch it today through Sunday, 12 to 6pm.
