Fashion hints from old postcards?

When listing vintage “glamour” postcards from the early 1900s to 1930s, I often wonder if they could be of some use to people in the fashion industry, perhaps for some style hints for a “retro” look, or to pick up an idea in there somewhere to create a “new” modern look.

This thought came back to me when I was listing a small group of Belgian hand coloured cards, I think from around 1920. Aside from that, they are a very attractive subject for a collection and they are both fairly plentiful and reasonably priced (I am selling this nice group of six cards here in my Reynard Collectables shop for £15!).

Have a look and see what you think?
