A love of 50's vintage frocks

I'm so in love with 50's dresses, you know the ones, with the nipped in waist and the full skirt. They're so feminine and quite flattering. They emphasize your best bits and hide your bumpy bits! They create the illusion of shape and can make your waist look smaller with their beautiful proportions.

Looking at various dresses of that era, I tried to imagine where a young lady of the fifties might wear such dresses, what special event would be linked with that special dress in a girl's wardrobe. I'm sure most females of today reminisce  when they look through their wardrobes. As a result, I've created a series of nostalgic artworks exploring the notion of time and memory in a young girl's life. View more works here
