Fashion videos, the 1950s

Posted by on in Styles


1950s Fashion

Even casual lovers of fine fashion have undoubtedly worn or at least admired the classy elegant styles of fashion’s golden age, the glamorous 1950’s era.The origins of 1950s fashion began with Christian Dior’s “New Look,” in 1947. The “New Look” consisted of a below-mid-calf length, full-skirt, pointed bust, small waist, and rounded shoulder line. The look became popular post WWII. At first, the style was not well received by Americans; however, that quickly changed as the trend dominated fashion magazines. Other styles that became popular during the post-war period were “a tailored, feminine look with gloves and pearls, tailored suits with fitted jackets with peplums, with a pencil skirt. Day dresses had fitted bodices and full skirts.

“Fashion changes, but style endures.” - Coco Chanel

Black and white... night and day, vintage crochet dresses...


Crochet has always been popular, throughout the eras. The 1920s brought a flood of bead crocheted bags with piles of bead loops to complete the ‘Flapper’ look. From 1937 through to the 1940s, there were crochet contests held for skill, design and speed... Don't you wish you could have been there at one of those shows, seeing the beautiful creations, all those styles created all those years ago which influence so much of fashion today.


The onset of World War II saw the craft slow right down, owing to shortages in available materials. Beaded crochet bags were once again very popular throughout the 1950s. Crochet became an accepted art form in the 1960s, and crochet dresses black and white exploded onto the scene in the 70s...and the 1980s and 1990s too brought a renaissance of crochet clothing. All of these decades have offered something special, with the most exquisite crochet pieces never going out of fashion, and, as you will see from the top designers, from the catwalk to the high street, crochet is more relevant and sought after now than ever...


Crochet, timeless, exquisite, intricate, beautiful...
