MAY 2013 2.50Style Mida welcomes you into to a World of Vintage Fash-ionboasting sheer glamour, sophistication and innate beauty. Style Mida is an international stylish Fashion Magazine. This week documenting my fashion feature entitled Sheer Vintage, which consists of an array of eye-catching images dedicated to 1960s and 70s style, Vintage to emancipate that Vintage is back ladies! The 21st Century Fashion Industry is highly influential in terms of trends yet diverse and up to date Its new, funky and fresh. However, this seems to done peoples opinions on Fashion. People, more often than not, associate to Vintage as being old, haggard and out of date how wrong can they be!?. I must admit I used to be in that circle. As a child I would look often look through my grandparents wardrobe laughing in disgust.. yet to mention going near a vintage shop! Little did I know ones interest in Fashion can change everything. Vintage Fashion is a fashion style, which often portrays a style of clothing often dedicated to both new and old clothing originating from a previous era. The idea of my Sheer Vintage feature is to emancipate the retrospective of Vintage Fashion. Vintage is timeless, although associated with being old it actually boasts value and could be consid-ered a hard asset. The quality in both fabric and design in vintage dresses is phenomenal and although most vintage clothes have been work there are a selected few, which have not ladies! People often ask me well where can you buy vin-tage clothes? I simply shone for words, vintage clothes are everywhere, at your local charity shop, flea markets, fairs, auctions and many more! However, every piece of vintage clothing is unique and the clothing sizes can be consider-ably smaller than that of contemporary sizes. This is not a problem.. Just buy a size up, size is simply a printed label who nobody even sees, all you weight/size conscious ladies. BUT Vintage is not all about the clothes the term vintage covers all elements such as jewellery, furniture and antiques. My sheer vintage feature incorporates, a vintage fashion shoot, vintage clothing items and lastly vintage style items. Although, yes this is a fashion magazine the idea behind it was to emphasize the theme on an array of angles based on one subject Vintage. Not only, does it look visually appealing, it demonstrates an exploration. Photo-graphing inside a local vintage hotel in a seaside town was enticing to say the least! The rooms were grand, colourful and decorative what more could you want for a Vintage Fashion Shoot. For the fashion side of things I wanted to focus on the Vintage dresses of the 60s and 70s, I styled around 12 different looks to give variation in colour, style mood and therefore impact. Additionally I wanted to glamorise the vintage style therefore portrayed a sense of sophistication and elegance, which has been depicted through the model herself and her poses.
