San Diego History Center and Mesa College open ‘Fashion Redux 90 Years of Fashion’ exhibit
Fashion-forward trends come alive this spring by looking back on 90 years of San Diego fashion.
Brooke Druen was inspired by the silhouette of the 1940s and the color of the 1980s, which she has combined to create her garment. The simple yet elegant design is accentuated with colored buttons going down the back of the dress.
Jocelyn Saucedo was inspired by a 1960s two-piece outfit by Patricia Ladner showcasing the fabric through minimalist design. The fabric used in her garment has detailed embroidery complementing the voluminous trapeze top and simple skirt.
Anna Acosta was inspired by the silhouette of the 1940s—defined waistlines and rounded shoulders that softened a woman’s shape. The fabric used in her garment is an olive-green taffeta that she says “resembles nature.”.
Christians Moore was inspired by the feminine silhouette of the “poof” or “bubble” skirt. The fabric used in her garment is a technical fabric called “Boho Scuba” that gives the piece a modern, updated look.
