1910s Evening Gown
1920s Evening Gown


Although I do not consider myself an expert of Vintage Fashion, I have been interested since I was a teen way back in the 1970s!And as such have taken in a lot of study and information on the subject, as well as practice and so I now think I can say that I have enough knowledge to pass on tips for your benefit.

With the advent of the internet and the world wide web, research with illustrations is at our  fingertips and since I have used a home PC since 1994, that's also a lot of information my brain has collected.In addition, I do hold an Advanced Diploma in Heritage Interior Design,

although it is not about fashion,one does have to have a sense of style and flair

to design and the aptitude to learn about design history.


Anyway, please enjoy the information and illustrations posted here for your pleasure.

Finally, I hope perusing this and the following pages will give you passion and love for all things Vintage!
