One of my main sources of inspiration: fashion drawings fom the 1920s to the 1930s and before. Here are some from my collection:
by Bentio, Vanity Fair Cover from 1927, very funny but still chic!
Vogue Cover by George Lepape from 1921 – puristic and exact lines
Another Vogue Cover by Lepape from November 1927
A Vogue Cover by George Plank fom November 1921, a starchatcher with a tennis racket in a ballet inspired dress – a truly fantastic combination!
Asia Cover by Frank Mackintosh from Aguste 1931
McCall Quarterly, Summer 1928, The Paris Fashion Issue
