When browsing through some of my old photos, saw some of the party we attended
Last year we were invited to a friends 50th birthday party and on the invite it stipulated to dress like it was 1965.
I've always been a fan of this chic dress, which was designed by Yves St. Laurent back in 1965. Maybe I could run up a similar dress to wear as it looked like it would be simple to make
So off to the Fabric Shop I went, to buy some linen fabric and in the colours of the original dress.
Had fun sewing up the dress and that is what I wore on the night.
It became known as the Mondrian Collection and was inspired by the abstract paintings of the Dutch, De Stijl Artist, Piet Mondrian.
Yves St Laurent designed a group of bold dresses on interesting, intersecting black stripes and blocks of primary colours.
The Mondrian Collection was featured on the front cover of French Vogue in 1965.
It was a fun party and good to see what everyone wore on the night.
thank you for your sweet comments and visits
Have a happy week
