So as a recent fashion graduate with a sudden burst of motivation and confidence I have decided to set up studio at home and get myself into gear making all the vintage clothes I adore from Old Hollywood films and have always wanted to make.
I plan to scour charity/vintage and fabric shops and make some fabulous vintage inspired pieces to sell online. This blog is mainly for me to post inspiration and outfits that I want to re-make.
I have been reading some great books from the library and there are many more I want to buy which I shall post on here and post all pictures of garments I spruce up/alter/make from scratch as well as any design ideas/sketches.
So the blog title Copacetic Clothes is taken from a 1920’s/1930’s phrase I found that means ‘in excellent order’, which I intend all the pieces I make to be, as well as all my inspiration being fabulous.
My inspirations will mostly stem from Marilyn Monroe films, as well as iconic stars such as Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Louise Brooks, Jean Harlow and many many more. I am really interested in learning about fashion in the 20’s right up to the 50’s so if anyone would like to share any images or information with me I would be ever so grateful!
I shall begin by uploading some books I have/want and what I intend to take from them.
I hope you enjoy!
