A lovely early 1950s inspired fabric

Although this dress is inspired by 1950s fabric designs it could just as easily have been created as a fresh modern design yesterday!

The inspiration for this design is taken from the very early designs which appeared at the start of the 1950s. For them the world of science was a very new one and discoveries were opening up the modern scientific world daily. Anxious to incorporate these into the fabric (pun intended) of modern life they seized the photographs and drawing that were appearing from microscopes and incorporated them into design fabrics.

You sometimes see homage paid to those early designers today but not, in my opinion, nearly often enough and so I have created a design in two colours which I have used as a fashion fabric. Sadly I could not afford to have the material made up and then a dress created so I have had to rely on my 3D models to bring you a taste of the fabric design.
