Ann Sheppard pays homage to all the forgotten heroines of the early 20th century – women for whom independence, self-assurance and freedom were important. They were not rebels or renegades, they just loved what they were doing.
Amelia Earhart, Gertrude Ederle and Jacqueline Cochran are some of these heroines, not forgetting all the countless female industrial workers who through building planes and ships amongst other things formed the backbone of the technological progress of the 1930s and especially the 1940s.
The fields of women’s activities changed dramatically and the styles of clothing changed with them. Inspired by these times, values and developments Ann Sheppard creates apparel rooted in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. This apparel is made to the same quality standards and with the same vintage techniques. Best fabrics, finest accessories and detailed finishing are the basis of all Ann Sheppard’s collections.
