Fashion in Art

I have been a little slack in my blogging here of late. Sorry. It's because I have started another blog (yes, crazy I know) and my energy has been going in to that this past week. I will still keep up with this blog, for all my history, vintage mags, fashion and movies, but my other blog is about interior design and decoration, past, present and future. It's what I trained in, and hope one day to go back to, so I though it was time I caught up with the latest trends, had another look at design history, and kept a record of great ideas.  If you want to check it out, please head to HOME LUST.

Anyway, today a look at some more 30s vintage fashion in art - in a portrait by one of my favourite 1930's artists - Tamara de Lempicka.

This painting was done in 1932, and the shape, colour and sheen of the dress really reminds me of this dress by Bruyère from 1931/32 - with the tie tied at the front rather than the back.

What do you think?

  1. What a gorgeous dress! It does look a lot like the one in the painting.
