A bold, bright, energetic decade, the 1980s brought a colour clash of fun fluorescents and pretty pastels following the drab earthy tones of the 1970s. Often remembered as a decade of materialism and consumerism, the 1980s was a time for flamboyant fashions. Big shoulder pads, chunky jewellery and neon leg warmers became wardrobe staples, whilst a big perm, was the 'must have' hairstyle. In Jersey, the 1980s are seen as the final decade of the Island's post-war tourism boom, as air-fares to destinations abroad became less expensive. Jersey's finance sector continued to grow and the workforce migrated from farm work and tourism towards jobs within the finance industry. Six stamps explore aspects of 1980s popular culture including: Language, Music, Fashion, Event, Food & Drink, and Leisure.
