Vintage knitwear inspiration - knitwear and fashion from the 1920s

 

Contemporary Knitwear inspired by Vintage knitwear

I've been doing picture research recently, while planning knitwear designs for later in the year.

Folds, pleats and geometrics

Some of my new designs use folds and pleats; some have geometric patterns. I've been looking at knitwear and fashion from the 1920s, and I've been struck by how remarkably modern many of them are. Photographed on today's models with modern hair, make up and styling, many of them would easily pass for contemporary pieces.

Pinterest is a wonderful source of inspiration

If you haven't yet discovered Pinterest, it's well worth a visit. I find it a great source of apparently never-ending inspiration for my knitwear, as well crafts, interior decor, travel, photography and much more.

Check out my Pinterest boards and let me know what you think?
