Credits for the wonderful photographs I was able to use to create this website are from the great work of John Rawlings (1912-1970).
A fashion photographer from the 1930s through the 1960s. Rawlings left a significant body of work, including 200 Vogue magazines and Glamour magazine covers to his credit and 30.000 photos in archive, Rawlings was in the elite circle of top Vogue photographers.
I also used a perfect black& white picture from Henry Clarke which for me represents what fashion should be all about: beautiful workmanship and materials combined with a perfect fit.
During an encounter with the Cecil Beaton during a photography session at Vogue’s studio, Clarke was entranced by the photographic image.
He promptly abandoned his fashion job, borrowed a Rolleiflex camera and began taking pictures.
Photograph of Ilja Visser is made by Peter Stigter.
All other photographs are placed in consultancy with the brands, artist names not available.
