The Fat and Skinny Spring 2010 Collection

A few months ago I showed you the collection I had to design for class that was based on the movies Gosford Park and Easy Virtue. Now I decided to design another collection just for the heck of it. This collection is based on Mad Men and the Dutch Square Mall pinwheel logo from the 80s and early 90s.

This is the Fall 2009 collection

This is the Spring 2010 collection

Mad Men’s Mad About Fashion

I hope you all watched the Mad Men season premier on Sunday. If not, please go watch it. That show is so amazing. The plots and the writing are great, and keep me locked in. There is so much going on in the story, but it isn’t like Lost or True Blood where it is hard to keep up if you haven’t watched the other seasons. I do suggest you watch the other seasons, but only because it is so good.

Anywho, I decided to make Polyvores of the show’s three main leading ladies. You have Betty Draper, the ideal housewife. Joan Holloway is the femme fatale who happens to be conflicted about her role in society. Then you have Peggy Olsen, the innocent copywriter. I identify with her the most because she is just trying to make it and move up in her career.

First up is Betty Draper

Next is Joan Holloway

Last but not least Peggy Olsen

Just for poops and hah hahs is my Mad Men makeover, which can be done here.

Progress, Progress, Progress…I’m integrating Sterling Cooper Y’all!
