1920s attire – pics of the week

I saw this beautiful ad from a 1926 fashion magazine on Etsy and was amazed by the variations and detailing of the gowns for sale. So, I looked through my Pinterest pages and pulled up some real ones 🙂

Lisa Ho vintage clothing auction

Back in August this year, Lisa Ho (a prominent Australian fashion designer) auctioned off her HUGE vintage clothing collection, which consisted of 100s of garments predominantly from the 1920s and 30s. Racks and racks of carefully organised items were for sale along with some of the most beautiful 20s beaded dresses I have even seen! I am happy to say that two of my favourite fellow bloggers in the Aussie vintage scene were there to bid for (and win) some of these beauties.

I have included just a small selection of what is featured in the online catalogue. You can find the rest here at Mossgreen Auctions. My favourites are the yellow dress (snapped up by my Sydney friend Inger), both the pink and the black coats in the second line of pics, the 30s red gown and the bias cut white 30s dress. All just stunning! I wish I could have been there to go through all though racks of 30s silk gowns.
