A few fashion history related articles and online happenings that the ITA team is currently geeking out over include, Shrimpton Couture's Look Who's Wearing Vintage feature, The Curious History of Men in Heels exhibit and a collection of oral histories as told by prominent members of the American fashion industry.
We love perusing Shrimpton Couture's online boutique and blog. They post loads of great content but one of our favorite features is "Look Who's Wearing Vintage" where they post images of celebrities wearing vintage designer and couture garments to red carpet events. We love seeing the modern interpretations of these iconic styles all in one convenient place. Check it out Look Who's Wearing Vintage

Material Mode - Enjoy!
