Fashion Plates

Originally released in 1978 Fashion Plates consisted of three different-sized plates that made up a fashion and you would switch them around making new styles. It was a more primitive versin of the popular Fashion Wheel. After you had decided which combination you liked best,you put a piece of paper on top and used the special crayon to print it.

Fashion Plates also came with coloured pencils so you could colour in your design afterwards.

I remember playing with my Fashion Plates for many hours trying to see how many different fashions could be made out of it.

    I loved fashion plates and wanted them desperately! My best friend received them from Christmas in '78 and we would work on them for hours. The ironicly, she went into international education WHILE I ended up at the fashion institute of design and merchandising; now in production development in the fashion industry!

    Spent hours and hours with these, using different color combinations and adding patterns from the backs of the plates to complete pasrts of the outfit. You have a solid shirt with a flowered skirt for example.

    I bought one when I was 17 because I was thinking about going into the fashion industry.

    My mother bought me the original 1978 fashion plates at a garage sale in about the year 83 or so. I used to play with it for hours. I wish I still had it
