I’m not a fashion historian, and don’t pretend to be …I’ve been a designer for over 25 years and I’m obsessed with both history and fashion. For me researching fashions from the past has always been one of the most fun parts of designing and working with clothes…well that and shopping !
My next book, Details -Fashion Accessories of the 30s and 40s will take a look at women’s fashion accessories during two of the most difficult time periods in women’s fashion. These were pivotal years for accessories when women often turned to them as an affordable and easy alternative for some fashion, glamour and sophistication in their wardrobes.
I’d like to share some of the great ads and information I come across as I do my research; and for anyone out there who loves this time period and accessories as much as I do – I invite you to join me and share your thoughts!
