Aug 04 Vintage fashion magazine ads
I stumbled upon an Etsy shop dedicated to vintage fashion magazine ads. I felt like I unearthed a treasure chest or something… a huge source of inspirations! According to the shop description, the shop owners dig in antique stores and Paris flea markets searching for interesting ephemera to share with customers. They offer original vintage fashion advertisements and fashion pages from the 1910s-1970s, and the sale items are all categorized by period. Almost entire 20th century fashion history is at this one spot.
I love the facts that a lot of vintage ads used hand drawn illustrations and paintings.
Here’s the shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/paperdollgirls
