FASHION AND PHOTOGRAPHY HAVE ALWAYS MADE A PERFECT MATCH

deco-fashion-frenchTHESE RETRO IMAGES ARE BOTH EXAMPLES OF VINTAGE ROMANTIC FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHY. THE TOP IMAGE PROBABLY DATES FROM THE VERY LATE 1920’S OR EARLY 1930’S. THE MID LENGTH SKIRT (ALTHOUGH YOU CAN’T ACTUALLY SEE THE GIRLS LEGS IN THE PHOTOGRAPH) WAS A DARING FASHION STATEMENT FOR MODERN WOMEN OF THAT TIME. PERIOD. THIS PHOTOGRAPH WOULD HAVE BEEN HAND COLOURED, USING A TINT PAINTED OVER THE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPH.

THE SEPIA TONED PHOTOGRAPH IS MODEST AND ROMANTIC AND JUDGING BY THE GIRLS ROMANTIC HAIRSTYLE IT IS OLDER THAN THE COLOURED PHOTOGRAPH. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY THIS LOVELY GIRL DOES HAVE A MODERN AND AWARE GLINT IN HER EYE.
