Mannequin Design: 1930s by Velven Mannequin Design: 1930s by Velven
I had to design some mannequins for the shop window at work and they were supposed to be current fashion outfits, but me being me, I decided to revisit some classy outfits from the past (with a bit of a modern twist) instead. :)

The photos of the mannequins are in my scraps, but I also did a design for each one, just to practice some different eras of illustration.

This is my 1930s inspired outfit. It consists of a brick red wool jacket and a charcoal grey floral print cotton skirt and scarf. I absolutely love this one. :D

So stylish! I love your work, it's truly inspiring. The rose pattern is beautiful and the hat... simply gorgeous :love: I'm a total fan of the 30s,40s and 50s, so your designs on this make me so happy! There are never enough of them :D

Haha, giddiness is the best reaction to costumes. I liek to think of these mannequins as a brave (but doomed) attempt to bring class to the regular clientele of the shop.

I say doomed because these are usually the kind of people who moan about not getting extra discounts on fabric that is already dirt cheap, and think that glittery tiger print lycra is classy. :puke:
