Researching past trends in the fashion industry is a common thread for design inspiration. We can see how different eras were effected by what was going on in the world at that time... like spying through a little glass ball, with the advantage of seeing the complete style period as an entire sphere.
It’s referred to as the “trickle on” effect and I love to stamp my modern interpretation. You can see Flora’s soft wrap neckline, raised back neckline, and asymmetrical hem detailing bring a sense of style and nostalgia back into our current time.

With a background in tailoring, this particular style period from the 1930s-1940s isfascinating to me. I’m constantly inspired and amazed at the intricacy in which garments were made with such minimal resources. How did they do it??
Channelling Elsa Schiaparelli when designing our Emmie dress, I draped the fabric on me and let the stripes work their magic, resulting in a sophisticated desk to dinner dress for the new season. On our Flora dress it was the wrap neckline, the asymmetrical skirt that whisper vintage..
Can you see the vintage influence? Is this your style?
