1950's Fashion Print

Friday, June 17, 2011

I've been looking for a good visual reference book of designs from the 1950's for a LONG time. I'm so happy to say I've finally found it!

1950s Fashion Print by Marnie Fogg. This is a wonderful graphic reference with text excerpts that describe each pattern and it's origins and influences. There are even photos of vintage 50's advertisements showing off the new patterns available for home fashion. Many of the designs shown were used for upholstery fabric, drapery, and wallpaper.

I'm still reading my way through it, but so far this book is everything I hoped for. There's also 1960s Fashion Print by the same author that I just put on my wish list.
