Clothes of the 1950's had a large impact on the styles we see today. Defined waists, vibrant colors, and bold statements characterized the era, and bold female film icons like Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor and Ingrid Bergman led the way with this fashion breakthrough.
Even today, its easy to see the era's influence on our modern day world with things like saddle shoes and bobby socks, the hula hoop, jukeboxes and Bruno Mars music! All a little more modern, but all starting out in the 1950's.
Amy is a Mom to 4 children with special needs, she is a Zumba fitness instructor, homeschool teacher, event organizer, and altogether independent and strong modern day woman. But even with all the influences of 2015, Amy's favorite time and fashion is the 1950's era. I had the pleasure of doing a shoot with her where she shows her striking, classic and beautiful personality that stepped right out of this bold decade.
Its wonderful to see modern adaptations of such a vintage style and era that brought so much liberation to so many. It's also so refreshing to meet people who enjoy sharing their personality and own unique style through this medium.
