We, the general public, now have thousands of fashion drawings and sketches from the 1930’s and early 40s at our fingertips. The digitized collection, produced by André Fashion Studios, is the result of a partnership between the Picture Collection of The New York Public Library and the Special Collections & FIT Archives of the Fashion Institute of Technology Library. Browse seasonal designs, costumes, or famous designers for your own inspiration in editing a current wardrobe. Lets be honest, who doesn’t appreciate history, smart collaboration and classic style? Some of my favorite sketches are shared below this browser-friendly link.
I am thoroughly, and officially, infatuated.
