I have for sale an extraordinary item which has been with me for about seven years.
I have now decided it is time to let it go to a good home...
This astonishing fashion portfolio belonged to a fashion student who studied at the West Sussex College of Art in 1968 - there is a dated project brief included in the pile of sketches. The name of the student is still written in pencil at the top of the page and I have researched her, but couldn't find anything. I wonder if she had a career in fashion!
PART 1: The portfolio covers evening wear, day wear, coats, pyjamas, suits... It is absolutely extraordinary in its detail: most pages feature a detailed description of the garments and some even have the sample material stapled to the sketches.
If you were a fashion designer and had this, you would be able to produce a whole - genuine! - 1968 collection!
There are 120 pages of sketches!
PART 2: Also included is a photography scrapbook - supposedly put together by the same fashion student - with fabulous full-colour fashion pictures taken from 60s/70s fashion magazines.
All this comes in a brand new black art portfolio measuring 62.5cm X 45cm.
Its price reflects its uniqueness and it is for sale at £275, bank transfer and collection only.
I think therefore I write.
