My mother  (a fashion designer in her own right) always said  that “Good taste never goes out of style.” The similarity of these two gowns … designed more than 40 years apart is a testament to that! Style does indeed endure forever.

Evolution of Design…

Fashion designers are known to get inspiration from a number of venues. Sometimes they are traveling and see a certain textile or print that they want to reproduce. Sometimes they discover a need that has not yet been filled in the fashion world AND sometimes they glance through historic fashion tombs and FIND (nice word for COPY) an idea. That IDEA may evolve into an item that is eerily similar in shape and design to the original but with a few changes. I give you exhibit A…or in this case exhibit 22 & 24. Is it me or does the recent Tiffany Morgan jewel clutch resemble a design combo of the aforementioned clutches from 1933??? Just a thought.
