Designer Inspirations

It's a well known fact that today's designers take alot of their inspiration from vintage designs. Not just the cut of an outfit but the patterns of the fabric.

Much to my delight, when I opened my November copy of "FASHION" magazine, there was a Michael Kors dress that looked very familiar. The color hues are slightly different but I think I found his inspiration!

This 1950s swing dress is now available in our store for a reasonable $56. Or you can buy the Michael Kors for $1995.

Michael Kors! Project Runway!! Never in my life did I imagine surfing by a fashion blog and find something that I connected with. I watch too much T.V.

Great dress! Kors continued his use of 50's fabric inspiration for Spring 2009.
