Floral Fashion… Then and Now

Inspired by Warhol

When Lynn from Decor Arts Now asked us to participate in her post about cultivating our personal style based the memory of our first room (a question prompted by Carlton Varney at the What’s New, What’s Next event at the NYDC last week), we couldn’t help but think back to the outfits our mother wore when in that room…

Diane von Furstenberg

One of our favorite dresses (which she still owns) is a Pucci floral shift that dates back to the early 1970’s.

Needless to say, we’re happy to see that pop art flowers are back in style for Spring 2012!

    Pucci has stayed in style, it seems, for numerous decades. I always love their bright, happy pops of color!!! I have a Pucci skirt I love…what is it with me and skirts?! 🙂

    I cannot wait to buy a few yards of some big popping blossom and make some tops and skirts.
    There is something happy and mod about the scale of big bold blossoms.
    Reminds me of Mary Quant and Marimekko-
