There is something to be said about vintage clothing. The elegance and Romanticism in clothing through the generations by countless designers is showcased in an impressive collection of vintage couture wedding dresses at TheFROCK. Their website offers over 70 vintage dresses apparently in impeccable condition spanning from 1890 through the 70’s.
If I had an extra $3700.00 lying around and burning a whole in my pocket, I would have to purchase this ivory silk chiffon, sweetheart bodice Jacques Fath gown complete with mink trim. I think it is even in my size. It’s hard to believe that a gown designed 60 years ago would still be so fashionable. Another timeless favorite that I found is the dress in the middle by Valentino circa 1970. The cream and bone scalloped lace gown with striated linen hem and a sculptural obi bow is sure to turn heads–if you have the figure to go along with it–there is certainly no room for error. I can also see vintage clothing mixed with modern elements to create an updated look. The rare art deco lace bridal coat dress with scalloped, circular train could perhaps have the sleeves altered to a cap length and possibly have a contrasting color slip underdress. Add a colorful, floral enamel necklace and swanky shoes and you have a look that is quite unique.
I am calling this the fairytale Midsummer Nights Dream collection. If you ever wanted to look like a princess, tulle it is.
If you really want to be different, why not pink!! This 1950’s Christian Dior tulle gown would be the icing on the cake for a vintage wedding. The strapless, sweetheart bodice gown with charming floral applique, bead and sequin vine overskirt is offered for $6300.00. The other lovely designs are a Grecian inspired 1960’s gown by Bergdorf Goodman and the other taffeta ballgown accented with crystals and seed pearls is Christian Dior circa 1958.
