STACY LOMMAN : NEW YORK  -  Luxury Apparel


That Was Then, This Is Now

When I'm feeling uninspired and stagnant, I dive into my fashion archives for some much needed rejuvination.  By fashion archives, I mean the mountain of magazines I somehow manage to store in a one bedroom NYC apartment.  I know that in today's modern age of technology I can find almost anything online, but I'm a sucker for having something tangible.  Besides, I feel a tremendous sense of pride when I flip through my September 1985 issue of Vogue! Today, I happened to be browsing through an old Collezioni from Spring 1992 when I came across designer Susanne Wiebe who was showing in Munich that season.  I recently featured a few looks from Wiebe's Fall 2010 collection from Berlin Fashion Week.  What an interesting progression she has made over 18 years!  I thought it would be fun to compare...

Susanne Wiebe Collection - Spring 1992

Susanne Wiebe - Fall 2010

Well, that's quite a difference!  What do you guys think?


  1. I kept my (insanely large) collection of (basically every US) magazines till I moved into a 900 sq foot condo with my now husband. There was just no more space. And while I really appreciate not having the clutter, I do miss those babies.

  2. i had a "moment" last month where i had a tinge of regret of all the magazines i had gotten rid of...because of clutter... =(

    this is pretty insane the difference in this one designer...i would never have thought just looking at the pics that it was one and the same...but i like that it evolved so much...

  3. I'm so glad you keep lots of old clips. Gonna use some of those soon!
