I continued the vintage feel from print designs through to the style of clothing. I chose forties shapes with peplums and tailored touches to convey wartime fashion but updated them to suit a modern audience. I looked at dress patterns from past decades and updated the look through shortening hemlines and adjusting the silhouettes. As this is something I do as a hobby, altering old clothes to suit my modern preference, I found it quite easy.
Through the collection "Modern Vintage" I wanted to take vintage fashion and make it current. The digital media and cut of the garments are very now while the palette and styling have a very aged feel deriving from the inspiration of the past.
I enjoyed making this collection, it was my first real attempt at fashion illustration and print designs and am therefore pleased with the outcome.
