Inspiration | vintage photography
We have piles of vintage magazines in the studio and I troll through them all the time for inspiration when I am designing. I'm getting ready to design a new collection to go to print in May so I have my inspiration radar turned on all the time at the moment. Even just 15 minutes spent flipping through vintage fashion mags can really get my revved up with great colour combinations and composition ideas. These images are from here - I hope you like them as much as I do. The first 2 have the most dreamy colour palette and I love the way the bottom 3 are cropped.

NOTE: This post was originally posted in February. I am repeating some of our most popular posts this week while I am on vacation - hopefully I will come up with a few new ones this week too. Hope you enjoy these illustrations as much as I do.

I loved this when you posted it in February, and I love it again. These women remind me so much of my grandmother, who was one stylish lady. She was about the same size as I am, and I wish that I still had all of her amazing clothes--many of which she made herself!
