Item description for Very Vintage: The Guide to Vintage Patterns and Clothing by Iain Bromely...
Very Vintage: The Guide to Vintage Patterns and Clothing is a lavish celebration of vintage clothes, simultaneously providing insight into one of fashion's current trends and a review of 90 years of fashion history. Vintage has been a key reference point in fashion for many years.
Contemporary outlets, such as Beyond Retro and Rokit, amongst others, have helped push vintage into the mainstream, and it is now more widely associated with contemporary style icons than musty charity shops. Very Vintage tells you all you need to know about vintage clothing, providing a stunning visual overview of seven decades of fashion. The perfect guide for fashionistas and anyone who loves clothes!
Spanning 90 years of fashion, each era has a comprehensive section that is beautifully illustrated with original fashion photographs, hand drawn illustrations and clothing patterns. Arranged thematically by period, the book pays homage to fashion history whilst giving the garments contemporary relevance. Very Vintage profiles iconic designers such as Laura Ashley, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Mary Quant, Biba, John Galliano, Christian Dior and Chanel and includes a glossary of websites and outlets for sourcing vintage clothes and useful materials.
