Vogue Pattern Book- Winter 1970
Julie Houstons cool shop in Wigtown the Book End Studio.
These illustrations remind me of the Diana annuals from the 70's that I grew up with. The models are lithe and languid with detached expressions and very cool clothes. Typical of the 70's my mother always had patterns about when I was young and there is a lot of nostalgia in looking through this book.
Don't you love the last picture- is it an office setting or just their kitchen- and is that a Taurus the Bull picture on the wall. Quite a wee snapshot of 70's gender relations I would say!
More to come! xx
