ReVamp is a Los Angeles based e-store that produces retro clothing for Women and Men inspired by the designs spanning the decades from 1910-1950s. ReVamp offers “all the elegance and beauty of bygone eras in clothing that can be worn comfortably in a contemporary context.”

This 50s style cocktail dress has a bodice that is stitched in a luxurious hunter green silk velvet, offset by the airy quality of the TEN LAYERS (woohoo!) of tulle and nylon net of the skirt. Somebody had me a martini!

This glamour-doll ensemble can be worn at your next Oscars Night bash. It’s made up in pewter silk shantung with scarlet accents. I don’t even know what to call this pants/evening gown combo style with its capri pants and attached Skirt/Peplum. Anyone know?

On a more casual note, this skirt-with-suspenders style and blouse with short, cuffed sleeves  would be great to cut-a-rug in.

This dress pays homage to the glamorous fashion designs of the mid-1940s. This rayon dress has seven gores to swing and swish beautifully on the dance floor. This dress looks to be particularly flattering on women with curvy figures with its sweetheart neckline. The sleeves are gathered on the cap and along the side of the sleeve creating asymmetrical hemline. They are similar the the sleeves I added to this dress I made in an online sew-along.

The Sabrina ensemble includes a skirt, blouse and jacket that brings to mind the decadent style of Dior’s New Look in the late 40s into it’s apex in the mid 50s.

And let’s not forget the men. The “Fletcher” is modeled off of a 1935 men’s fashion plate.

The “Grant” jacket was copied from a photograph taken of a movie star in 1947. This Hollywood jacket is also known as a “slacker jacket”, named for the apparent inclination of those men who were seen wearing them.
