1940's Fashion illustrations

Hope you enjoyed your easter breaks!
We thought we'd let you know that we've put some new vintage finds on Our Shop. This includes, these wonderful french fashion drawings from the 1940's. We found them last week, and instantly loved them. They're so beautiful that we’re finding it hard to part with them. The sketches were drawn in 1948, illustrating and giving you an insight into the season’s collection. The style back then, seems to echoe alot of tailoring and nipped in the waist details. Each drawing is numbered, and has a small sketch of the back of each outfit to accompany it. There are quite a few on Our Shop, do check them out.

  2. Fashion design may appear to be a glamorous profession with branded clothing and accessories. However, a lot of hard work goes into the creation of a designer item. Creation of a design involves a multi-step process. The designer has to keep in the mind not only the theme of the design but also how to create that design.
