Genetic Research Contribution #421
Fashion expert Bertie Bowen provided us with photographic proof that style is genetic.
"My parents were fashion crazy and used to save up and go to 'Kenny Market' in London as often as they could to search for coolest clothes and jazziest accessories then bring them home to Bedford, the small town I grew up in. I guess its about the only thing the had in common (they're the most opposite people i know!) These days I am a stylist and I live in London. Its just a shame Kenny Market no longer exists."
"The photo above of my Ma, Linda Bowen must've been taken around 1976 as she is with my big sister. The mixture of diagonal stripes and florals are amazing! Plus that bob, wow!"
"This picture is of my mum with my uber cool, Jimi Hendrix look-a-like, my Pa, Glen Bowen. I love their matching high waisted jeans." [ED.NOTE: Glen just earned a post on MMTSI's Husband Blog: Don't F*** With Dad]
