Of Another Fashion
I was trawling the net looking for images of 1940s ladies in hats (don't ask, CADD) when I stumbled across Of Another Fashion- An alternative archive of the not-quite-hidden but too often ignored fashion histories of U.S. women of color. It's a wonderful blog of fashion photos of women of color from a multitude of eras. There are gorgeous flappers, "Rosie the Riveters", Gibson girls and 50s Bombshells - real women in real clothes, not fashion models or starlets in magazines. Enjoy!
