'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: fashion

I found this little programme for a tiny price of 25p at a local vintage shop. It was the front cover that drew me in, and then as I flicked through the pages I saw some lovely examples of high-end fashion from the time.

It is such a step back in time, and as I flick through the pages I can imagine my self at the theatre, dressed up to the nines in my art deco beaded attire! The adverts are aimed at ladies with money, and really brings back the allure of the luxury of the time! Glorious!

Enjoy!

This weeks Wednesday is wish is a weird one. I’ve literally only just stumbled across this jewellery designer, as I was researching various materials to make some jewellery with . I’ve been feeling really fidgety recently, and a little lost on the creative front, so I am just pondering on the world of jewellery making (any help and suggestions would be lovely!). And voila, this lady’s work caught my eye.

It’s the imagination of it that I really admire, I think you either love this work or hate it.  It’s slightly creepy, but at the same time playful which is the main appeal for me!  The workman ship is very clearly high on these pieces too, altogether I think they are fascinating and wonderful!
