Art Deco graphic design

Yes…I know, graphic designer that I am –  I can’t go past Art Deco images that take my fancy from the 20s and 30s. Added some lovely favs today and others via a fellow blogger at Art Deco Gal who sometimes comes across images that I don’t have in my own collection. Enjoy 🙂


Another 30s beauty for my collection…

I recently bought a beautiful red crepe and cream lace 1930s bias cut gown from SIB Vintage. I think it is gorgeous, and best of all – it fits me to a tee. It also has lovely red glass buttons which look great in contrast against the lace.

Just before this dress arrived, I was flicking through another of my fav bloggers pages (The Painted Woman) and came across an article about ‘Vintage afternoon wear’ and found that she had featured a photo from a 1933 Vogue showing a very similar dress. It has scalloped detailing in the lace bodice and a collar but is strikingly similar to my crimson beauty. I love when I can find an example of a similar item from the same time period…makes it all the more interesting and helps place the garment to a more exact time period.
