|Fashion: A picture guide to its creators and creations, First Edition 1962|
Since pictures usually explain things better than I can in this area, I have compiled some of my favorite images from this book. Even though this book is far from relevant, I take so much inspiration from the silhouettes, the styling and the classic appearance of some of these models. In my application essay for the grad program, I made mention of the inspiration that I take from vintage fashion and how my goal is to bring vintage looks with modern edge to my designs. These are the looks that I was talking about.
"The whole position of women in Western civilization, is her struggle for equality and her success, is reflected in the garments she has worn." -Madge Garland*If Framingham State would like this book back, they need only contact me and I will gladly return it ;-)
