Fifties Fashion

John Lewis, Oxford St. currently have the most fabulous display of Fifties inspired dresses in celebration of the Coronation anniversary. The four, bespoke 'prom style' dresses were all inspired by 1953 sketches and prints from the John Lewis archives and created using authentic stitching methods. Timelessly elegant, they have each been fondly dubbed 'Audrey', 'Sylvia', 'Monica' and 'Kay'. What girl wouldn't feel the part under those voluptuous folds and swathes of fabric. Cue, high pony tail, chic neck scarf and ballet flats....Summer ready !

Of course if you are feeling inspired, there are also some fabulous patterns out there too with a very Fifties inspired feel! Loving Vogue's 8789. Bring on the pleats !
