Aristocrats of Fashion – 1940

aristocrats

I don’t know about you but all this frigid weather has me thinking about summer. Check out this vintage fashion footage from 1940. It’s a promotional feature spotlighting fashions for sport and evening wear, all made from Bemberg rayon.

Rayon: the new wonder fabric. Light, cool and easy to clean. What more could a girl want? Well maybe a lifetime membership to a private country club I guess.

Watch this clip from archive.org, it’s a campy trip back to a fantasy world of long ago.
