Through the Seasons: Florals

20 Jul

It seems that in the very fast paced world of today, some fashion trends come and go before they even hit the store shelves.   On the flip side, some looks seem to find a more permanent place in our hearts and on our runways.  I thought it might be fun to highlight some of these “trends with staying power” with a Through the Seasons Lookblog.

Up First: FLORALS – they seem to be having a moment in the sun…

    There was a mid price range dress designer named Emma Domb who in the 1950’s did a line of large floral print formal gowns. Her necklines were usually strapless, sweetheart or straight across. Over the years I have collected several of her gowns from this time period & they look very much like the Costume National & Alexander McQueen dresses here! I love it! I actually considered wearing one I have as a wedding dress. It has a small train & is a cream fabric with large blue & red cabbage roses on it! I ended up going with a Spanish lace gown instead but still hope I find an occasion to wear my Emma Domb gowns.
