Jane Forth and Vintage fashions in 1970

1930s and 1940s evening dresses, modelled by Jane Forth, July 1970

I have been collecting vintage clothing since the fall of 1977, but this article from the July 4, 1970 issue of Life magazine, featuring the latest ‘It’ model Jane Forth, wearing vintage fashions from the 1930s and 1940s for $12.50, is cheaper than any prices I ever remember!

Click here¬†for an interesting article about Jane Forth that explains how she became one of Warhol’s superstars and moved on to become a make-up artist for film and television.
