Nora Kirkpatrick wears the Sebastian dress by DAWN. Photo by James Branaman.
I first remember seeing Nora Kirkpatrick on a TV show called Greek, and later while she was on tour with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Seeing her in on the newly-launched, vintage-inspired shop DAWN was a pleasant surprise. She looks very much like a 1940s film starlet -- Nora explained to DAWN what draws her to vintage clothing:
"Beyond the fact that it just fits me better than modern clothes, I love the history behind it. I like knowing that there was another lady somewhere, at sometime, who very likely made this dress for work, or for a dance, or to impress a boy. It makes me feel connected to those who've come before."You can see the full interview and photo story here.
