Links à la Mode : Fashion History

links a la mode

Edited by Debutante Clothing

I was particularly proud of this week’s choices of IFB member links. As a vintage lover, I think fashion history is an often over-looked part of the fashion equation. I was thrilled to see so many fellow IFBers agree. Bonne Vie, Miss Glitzy, and Couture Allure are some of the blogs that took a trip to the past of fashion. But what good is history if we can’t learn from it? Several other bloggers explored contemporary fashion in the workplace and as a form of expression. We’ve got some real cerebral reads this week – enjoy!

    Yes, Fashion history is totally overlooked!

    Did you see the Valentino movie and how they were saying the new generation of designers will never really know couture since their teachers didn’t live when couture was really alive?

    I don’t think all is lost, but all of these cali designers making TSHIRTS need to stop calling their designs COUTURE!
