The Factory Girl: Eddie Sedgwick
A fan of vintage fashion, my favorite era's are the 50's and 60's.
The classic glamour of the 50's, the ultimate finished look. Women looked fantastically polished! Dressed to the 9's, with jewelry, shoes, hats, gloves, and purses all completing the final polished look.
The 60's broke away from this with the birth of mod.
I adore 60's mod!
A number of women helped to create this new style, fashion, and attitude.
They broke rules and the strict fashion molds of previous era's.
The looks and styles they created are now iconic.
My favorite of these women is Eddie Sedgwick.
She was a society girl (famous for being rich and famous), model, and muse to Andy Warhol.
She was a fashion icon that alone developed a distinctively 60's mod style, she created her own unique make up that was completely over the top and became popular with women of the era.
Factory Girl is a worthwhile movie.
