New Vintage Collage Illustrations: Wow What A Fashion Statement!

A few weeks ago I decided to give myself the challenge of creating a collage a day. It was merely to free myself and my work up a bit and just for a bit of fun. Doodling with paper so to speak. The results can be seen on my Instagram feed. And hell yeah – I’m so pleased I took this little challenge because I’ve created a whole series of Vintage Collage Illustrations from it. The first image came from a conversation with a friend on Twitter. How we got talking about this I’ve no idea but he told me about the saying ‘A Gentleman Never Wears Brown Shoes After 6 O’clock’. I presume from regency days and the fashion of Beau Brummel? (If anyone can enlighten me as to where this fashion statement came from, I’d love to know!) My mind started whirring and I came up with this: A Gentleman Never Wears Brown Shoes After 6 O'Clock | Digital Vintage Collage Illustration  by Georgie St Clair After that I found many more inspirational fashion statements and just couldn’t help have a little fun with them. I’ll be making them into prints and greeting cards for my next craft fair, the ‘We Made This Market’ in Horsham on May 3rd. Please pop by and say Hi. Mention you read this post and quote ‘Wow What a Fashion Statement’ and I may give you a little 10% discount on anything you purchase… 🙂 Bo Derek Quote About Shopping | Vintage Fashion Statement | Digital Collage Illustration by Georgie St Clair Manolo Blahnik Shoes & Divorce Quote | Vintage Fashion Statement Illustration | Digital Collage Illustration by Georgie St Clair Victoria Beckham Shoes Quote | Vintage Fashion Statement " Digital Collage Illustration by Georgie St Clair

  1. Love the gentleman in his super boots but my favourite is the ‘I can’t concentrate in flats’ one, it’s so classy. Totally not me though, I can’t concentrate in heels as ‘ow ow ow’ is all that goes through me head! x

      Haha me too! I live in trainers and ballet pumps these days. Still, I love my heels, even though though I never get to wear them.

      Thanks for stopping by! X
