Good morning… It’s a pleasure to read your message!
My name is Fernando Eduardo (Brazilian), 25 year, Civil Engineer.
About my page “The Fashion of Audrey”:
I am a true admirer of the Audrey’s style, my favorite actress and a true example of humanity, affection and love. Some years ago (about 10 years), I started to make a big research about her personal life and especially about her style.
I decided to create this Tumblr to share with Audrey’s fans informations about her style. Audrey Hepburn was a true fashion icon that we all know, but few really know about her clothes and favorite brands.
My mother is a big fan of Audrey, lived in Rome and Paris in the ’60s, and always had a passion for fashion. Almost all the information that I have about the Audrey’s clothes, I can look through fashion magazines of my mother’s collection (my mother was a International correspondent of an important Brazilian fashion magazine). It’s easy to me, because my mother has a room at her home that turned a file with about 5,000 fashion magazines from the 1950s to the present day.
I do a tireless research on the brands that Audrey wore, and really it’s a detailed search: fashion designers, brands, collections, fabrics, materials and for how long she wore her clothes (and acessories).
I love it so much! With each new discovery, I realize how Audrey was a REAL woman, far from the Hollywood standards!
She really had a true passion for fashion and for beautiful clothes. The “real” side: She did not care to repeat several times the same dress (for example, the pink cocktail gown by Givenchy, which she wore in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Audrey wore this short gown from 1960 until later 1971), and as it is fascinating! Do you agree?
All this research (in my mother’s collection and in websites, books and in another magazines from 1950s to 1993) is done with great care, attention and affection… In a way, a tribute to this wonderful woman!
Thank you for your words! Best regards, big hug.
