This past year my clients have been swept up in the whirlwind of nostalgia and have brought their own sense of fashion history, vintage detailing and personal taste to the design process.A big influence for my clients this year is silver screen glamour of the 1930's era. Bias - cut designs in delicate draped fabrics such as slinky silk crepe back satin, georgette and chiffon made to glide down the aisle as if it was a red carpet. The dresses of the 1930's particularly suit slender figures and is body consious contouring and characterised by seeming effortless sophisticated simplicity.
I totally enjoyed using the cut of the fabric to create flow and movement. I am so used to creating shapes using structural pattern cutting and formal underpinnings it was very freeing to let the fabric do the talking.
