hi guys....i could do with your help!
basically i have to produce a research book for my fashion marketing degree which shows fashion from the 1950s, this is to help me produce a shirt/blouse with a 1950s influence (this doesnt mean i only have to look at shirts/blouses, i can look at anything from that era because i need to look at colours, patterns, fabrics etc...)
so anyway, i was wondering if any of you could help as i'm really struggling to find things where i live (Manchester, UK) if anyone from the UK (or anywhere else if you have info and they ship to the UK) knows any good shops/internet sites or something that may help......(the cheaper the better, as i'm a poor student now)
also, if anyone has anything from the 1950s (images etc) that they wouldnt mind sending my way, that would be great (you could just scan them and send them to me) or perhaps you were around in the 1950s and have some photos that you wouldn't mind sharing with me that show the fashions of that time, they would be sooooooo great!!! (people have used personal photos of family & friends etc in their research books in the past) or maybe you made something 1950s inspired of from a 1950s pattern that you wouldn't mind sharing with me
or perhaps you just have some info on fashions from that time, really, anything will do!!
i'm really struggling to find anything where i live, i dunno if i'm just looking in the wrong places, but i just can't find anything, maybe it's because everyones so obsessed with that era right now that they've already snapped everything up haha!
anyway! thank you all for your help & time, i really appreciate it
feel free to message me for more info (if i dont reply, i'm not being rude, i just dont have the net at my place at uni yet hehe, so bear with me!)
