Mod Icon: Twiggy

Standard

Twiggy represents mod. From 1960’s she rocked the mod scene being one of the most famous international super models of her time.Twiggy was soon seen in all the leading fashion magazines, commanding fees of 80 euros an hour, bringing out her own line of clothes called “Twiggy Dresses” in 1967, and taking the fashion world by storm. She is for me one of the most inspirational models of her time because besides of her boyish cut she wasn’t afraid to conquer the world with her unique style. Still till this day she walks with grace and is still being her original self and is respected everywhere.

Vintage inspiration used in Modern Times

Standard

Since I was about 16 years-old I noticed that current trends looked very familiar. Going through my mother’s photo albums, I realized that old trends were used in current fashion. Now it’s being used more and more every season. Now in fall 2011 the trend is 1970’s; Flared pants, fur vest, and loose chiffon shirts. Since I love old vintage clothing, I love it even more that I don’t have to modernized them to our new decade myself. Fashion designers are creating 70’s inspired clothing but with that modern touch. You can go to stores like Bebe or even Forever21 and find trends like these anywhere. ❤

Back in the ’50′s John Rawlings was one of the most talented fashion photographers out there. Besides his outstanding taste for the beautiful things in life, he was no doubt a remarkable visionair and a daring pioneer in the industry. Six decades later another iconic fashion photographer, named, Steven Meisel obviously took a peek at some of mister Rawlings work while shooting the spring – summer 2009 Missoni campaign. It’s a proven fact fashion history repeats itself.
 
  

My Love For Fashion

Standard
I absolutely love fashion! It’s more like a thing you just can’t put your finger on. At the same time you can express a whole another world. With fashion you can express how are you feeling that day or a time or place in history, the list goes on. When I wake up and I know I’m stuck in a rut, I love dressing up in the most fantastic hair do’s and outfit ever so it can balance my mood for the day. Everybody has their favorite style or name brand, but I love anything vintage (40’s-60’s era).Vintage fashion is and will always be my life inspiration.
