Über das Buch
jam-packed chamber. I suppose the dresses are from the late 50s until the late 80s. Some I could recall, others I never saw or just couldn´t remember. Mom seemed to have been a fashionable woman! I wondered how those dresses did look on her? Since the clothes smelled mouldy, I probably would have thrown them away, but Ursula refused. So we came up with the idea to ask friends to act as fashion models for the dresses of my mom. If they liked what they wore, they could keep it. Our friends were super supportive. Even the ones who didn´t enjoy to pose in front of a camera, were ready to participate. Ursula well pushed the project forward, always finding another item and another friend to engage with.
So the following images are not only a recollection of our moms fashion,
but also a collection of friends wearing what you probably would call "old fashion".
