Over the years, I have continuously admired the women of the 1950’s for their ageless sophistication and graceful appearance, as their style has made a mark within my personal aesthetic. A muse can be seen as one that “Makes the magic happen” as Audrey Hepburn did when she first met Hubert Givenchy, designer of the iconic black sheath dress worn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. Another individual whom I hold dear to my heart would be my late aunt, Roberta Alexander, a talented designer of her era, which has inspired my sense of style. Her prevailing fashion and style choices will always live on, through her 1970’s vintage designs.
In her late life, my aunt commissioned her fashion career with passion and creativity. Her designs consisted of traditional red plaid patterns; peter pan collared blouses and elongated polyester embellished maxi dresses. Gifted from her collection, a cross-hatched wool plaid patterned pencil skirt which I’ve come to adorn. A sentimental maverick garment which I have paired with my late grandmother’s nuptial blazer. Standing together once again mother and daughter, their souls joined through the conjunction of fashion.During this particular photo-shoot my mother had the honor to stand by, witnessing the garments of her late mother and sister come home for the holidays. Bring home the past with the adaptation of a fashionable past this holiday season.
