Vintage Vogue: Part 1

One of my best friends is getting married next weekend and the wedding will have a vintage feel, so I’ve dug out my archive of vintage fashion photography to inspire me while I am choosing my outfit (obviously I will not be wearing a swimsuit – I just love these images… I think the recent sunshine prompted this little collection!). I’ve collected hundreds of beautiful fashion images because the photography is incredible – the stylised forms, colours and textures that come together to create an iconic image are so inspiring. These images from 1950s’ Vogue evoke the spirit of the era and are as appealing now as they were then.
