I have passion for maintaining the memory of 20th century fashion designers, models and photographers including photojournalists.
My sets are a homage to the work of these incredibly talented people, especially the lesser known designers and photographers whose names have disappeared from the history of fashion. They deserve to be known, remembered and celebrated for their impact on 20th century fashion, however large or small.
I also have great respect for photojournalists who have been to some of the worst places in the world to bring to us their images. Their sets are also included in my account.
I give full credit to the copyright owners and where the copyright has been stated, I have provided the copyright text in full and I've also provided links to the organisations that own the images.
I've uploaded 100's of my own scans from vintage Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, LIFE and other magazines. You're most welcome to save them, upload to blogs, Flickr, to your websites and to share..a credit line or a link to the image/sets would be appreciated.

"Christine's sheer devotion and passion for the images of vintage fashion is evident in her stream. It is nothing short of amazing...an encyclopedic accumulation of every name, from designer to photographer to model, can be found here.
It is a researcher's paradise. Her work is so very important in keeping alive the names of all of the talent that would otherwise be forgotten.
She has spent her hard-earned money on acquiring the fashion magazines of yesteryear and taken the time in scanning them for us and our enjoyment.
Her generosity in sharing them with us, I find truly remarkable.
Here's hoping that she will be able to continue with this remarkable body of work and that her collection will grow ever larger.
Her stream is a daily must for me...and should be for you too !"
