The Great Gatsby
The 1920's (also known as The Great Gatsby era) is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. It was the decade in which women first abandoned the more restricting fashions of past years and began to wear more comfortable clothes (such as short dresses/skirts and trousers). Men also abandoned highly formal daily attire and even began to wear athletic clothing for the first time!"
The public passionately embraced the styles associated with what became known as the Roaring Twenties - lots of glitz and glam, feathers and pearls. This fashion became a trend and a social statement, breaking away from the Victorian way of life. The term 'flappers' was introduced.
Why not host a glamorous Great Gatsby/1920's flapper party - we have a wide range of outfits and accessories to offer you and we would be very happy to help coordinate your outfits. Or if you are attending a party from this era please contact us for assistance. See below just a couple of examples from this era....
We look forward to seeing you soon at Mardi Gras & dressing you!
