It's a rainy day here in NY.
I know I'm going to skip around between Great Gatsby and Dior but what a skip eh?
Check out this fabulous head band that Tiffany will be doing for Great Gatsby. There will be a line of the deco inspired jewelry coming out soon. This will be so lovely to see. I can't wait to see this movie! I'm sure it will also become part of my DVD collection.
I am just so enthralled by Dior's New Look collection 1947. I'd just love to look at one of these garments up close one day! I hope the MET puts on a display soon!
Today, I working on gathering the materials I need to add the hip padding to my "New Look" jacket. Check this out, I need "Heavy hair canvas, buckram, and heavy muslin". This is going to be interesting. I've never heard of heavy hair canvas or buckram. I'm going to buy everything I need at Vogue Fabrics since it beats looking around here and there. They even have a section on building your own corset. Don't think I'd be up for that one!
The shoulder padding is a little tricky. I'm trying to figure out a slopped padding.
Some YouTube Clips of "New Look" fashion..
This is in German but still wonderful to watch. Sign me up for any of these grand beauties <sigh>.
Here's a look at a recent photoshoot on "The Bar" suit:
This is a fabulous video because I can see a period undergarment padding and corset view. Music is horrible:P
