Autumn/Winter 09 Fashion Trends Go Vintage!

I just love the start of a new fashion season, I can't wait to see what collections today's designers have produced. Inevitably they do hark back to bygone eras, whether it's taking inspiration from Victoriana lace, Elizabethan ruffs or atomic era prints and Autumn/Winter 09 was no different...
The catwalk was awash with 30's style velvet gowns, 40's inspired tailored suits and 80's Avant Garde structures from striking shoulders to lame bows!
If the price tag of modern designers seems untouchable, vintage couture tailoring offers an affordable alternative without scrimping on the quality, just take a peak...

J'adore Dior!!! This had to be my favourite collection this season. It was oozing with jewel colours, delicate chiffon's and the most amazing china doll make up.
Here at Dirty Fabulous we always look out for vintage fabrics in rich colours so in keeping with this seasons trends expect to see lots of raspberry, teals and cobalt's in dresses from the 50's and 60's.

The 80's were every where in this seasons shows. We're not the biggest fan of that decade (living through it once was enough!) but we do love some of the big shapes and striking features. The 80's is not for the faint hearted but for a party dress with impact it's hard to beat!


Prada

Marc Jacobs


Here we see the return of velvet and chic tailoring. For similar vintage looks go for sublimely cut suits from the 40's and 50's.

Valentino


Zac Posen

Woweee you just have to love a statement coat! As the evenings unfortunately get a little shorter and cooler it may be time to think about investing in a fabulous yet snuggly coat.
We've had so many requests lately that we will definitely be stocking up in some show stopping coats to enable our customers to look uber glamorous when battling the elements.

Ellie Saab

This dress is a true reflection of 1930's glamour. The draped silhouette is not for everyone as it can be pretty unforgiving. The Dirty Fabulous vintage dress pictured above will give the same wow factor whilst hiding any bumps us girlies may have!


Dior
Lacroix

Lame, fur and elegance...what a combination! The subtle sparkle of metallic fabrics give an instant lift to any dress. We tend to look for these fabrics from the 50's and 60's...just Gorgeous!

It is great to see how vintage is incorporated into modern fashion!

It looks like after all the rebellion we go back to our roots and repeat all the trends of our parents, grandparents!
