On this day in fashion history

In 2011, Lily Allen and her sister, Sarah Owen, unveiled their debut fashion collection. Inspired by their vintage shop, Lucy In Disguise. The range featured pieces spanning the fashion decades; from Seventies jumpsuits, Twenties beaded flapper styles, Thirties tea dresses, Forties embroidered maxis and Fifties full-skirted looks with super-feminine frills. “After we’d launched the shop, I think we both felt that we wanted to create vintage styles with more contemporary, clean lines,” Allen said. “Sometimes with vintage clothes the femininity can get lost – the market didn’t feel quite perfect, so that’s what we’ve worked on. I’ve always been into vintage – before I became a pop star it was all I ever wore.”
