Victory Americana

Moschino Spring 2011

Zac Posen Resort 2013

More Moschino here and below

As I sit here in the middle of the night thinking about what to wear for 4th of July (I'm going to a vintage 30s/40s themed event... ideas?), I can only wish our wardrobe could be like some of the images depicted from the 40s. I love fashion with a purpose & that reflects heavily on the time. Victory suits + victory rolls are trends that defined a large chunk of the 1940s because of WWII. So much came out of fashion & the image of women during this time when everything was scarce & rationed.
Fashion that preservers and redefines
(& we see it echoed again & again on current runways - now that's strength & longevity!)

Hope everyone in the States has a Happy & Safe 4th!!!
