Ernesty said...

my Qs gonna b: what way of fighting is more effective, striking, grappling or using weapons?

Mr Woody said...

Barbara and Alyssa are comparing 50s fashion to 60s fashion, to illustrate the change in Western cultural values, towards a more liberal attitude. They will also design and make a 21st century fashion outfit that is a fusion of 50s, 60s and 21st century attitudes and trends.
They are only considering feminine socialising fashion, not everyday practical clothing.
