Love:Love – Vintage Wimbledon fashion
In nearly 140 years since its foundation the Wimbledon Tennis Championship has witnessed and inspired many a change in women’s fashion.
From traditional Victorian floor-length skirts in the late 1800s to dropped waist-lines of the 1920s.
The skirts begin to shorten and other details such as the frilly lace of Gussie Moran’s knickers can be seen in 1949…
