Feminine vintage inspired dresses in 1950s style from Australian Retrospec'd

Retrospec'd is an Australian brand created out of the love of vintage dresses and the elegant feminine vintage style. It is the two sisters Sharon Hanley and Teena Borg who together have created the universe that is Retrospec'd. 

At Retrospec'd, the dresses are paramount, and they are designed with inspiration from the sisters' own huge vintage wardrobe, consisting of dresses from the 1940s og 1950s. The clothes should have the same feel as their vintage dresses; be feminine with an emphasis on quality, cut, print and fit.

The idea behind the brand is that all women should be able to find a fantastic dress that with a unique cut, design and print can make you feel fabulous, regardless of age and size!

Retrospec'd creates designs with the aim of creating silhouettes with vintage flair, and with the most beautiful patterns and colors, and therefore many of their unique vintage style prints are also designed by Retrospec'd itself. Like that their clothes are made and produced in Australia.

Retrospec'd and vintage novelty print

The unique in-house designed prints for Retrospec's dress are often in novelty style. The novelty style was especially popular in the time from after 1945 and had its heyday in 1950s. The large swing dresses with lots of fabric were the obvious 'canvas' for the beautiful and unique prints.
A novelty pattern is a print with a theme. For example, it can be a party, music or animals or it can represent landscapes such as beaches, cities, islands or mountains. A novelty print is typically a conversation starter. It can also be the classic edge prints, which have a theme on the edge of the dress, after which the print on the rest of the dress is more calm. 

Retrospec'd is also known for their wonderful vintage floral prints in happy colors. And all prints are made in the beautiful vintage style, which for example is reminiscent of watercolor paint and 50s illustrations. 

Retrospec'd dresses for everyday and party.

From Retrospec'd, we get the most beautiful swing dresses with beautiful colorful prints every summer. They sit beautifully and highlight the feminine figure, and are available both with short sleeves and with straps. The swing dresses in the 50s inspired novety and floral prints are ideal for summer holidays and festive occasions.
