When asked what our favourite era is we always struggle to come up with an answer, the vibrant, quirky sixties, the sophisticated, elegant shapes of the 40s and the roaring twenties are never far from our minds but it has to be the vintage prints and prom dresses of the 1950s that just top it.
Maybe its the fact that throughout the era trends could range from poddle to pencil skirts and bright, bold colours to classic monochrome. Either this or the fact that I have a soft spot for the movie 'Grease' ( with its 1950s vibe and i-can't-help-but-sing-along-songs, it has to be one of my all time favourites!) Whatever the reason, I love the fashions of the 1950s and so we thought we might have a go at recreating some of the iconic looks of the era.
It was so much fun, living in the 1950s for a day and recreating some of the stand out fashions of the era, we hope you like the photos! We took inspiration from icons of the time, in particular Audery Hepburn. Also, thank you to all the lovely comments we have been receiving lately, we really appreciate them! :) xx
