Every month I share a vintage fashion scan in my digital newsletter and this month I scanned in an extra page for all of you! This one is from a Spring 1945 Hollywood Patterns booklet that I digitally restored.
Hollywood Patterns is one of my favorite vintage pattern lines. It actually was owned by Vogue and used Hollywood starlets to sell part of their line. Some of these patterns were used as tie-in products as a way to further promote that star's current film. I'm obsessed with Classic Hollywood tie-in items. My collection includes everything from match books and bottle caps to rare Latin mini flyers theaters used to help advertise the film. Maybe one day I'll share some of my favorite pieces. Would you guys like to see that?
