Inspiration Board: High fashion Sketches 1968

All illustrations from “Illustrating Fashion” by Edith Sloan, published circa 1969.

Some of the looks popular in the 1970s were already coming to the fore in 1968. The longer skirt lengths brought the look back to that of sophistication. The Dolly Girl look of the Mod 60s was phasing out.

I was born and raised in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, New York. I attended Hunter College where I graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in English Language Arts. After graduation I worked in various industries such as publishing, fashion, financial services, investment banking, and for government. My passion for fashion was nurtured at the French Fashion Academy where I learned dressmaking, patternmaking, sketching and draping. My enjoyment of dressmaking and family history find a wonderful home here at WordPress. I hope you enjoy both of my blogs.
