The roaring 20’s, Flappers, and Art Deco…

Ok this one is totally my favorite! I love the 20’s. In particular I love the Flappers!

An age of fringe, feather bowas, bobs and sparkles the 20’s. The name ‘Flapper’ was originally used as a derogatry term, but as time went by it was a name used to describe any young woman who wore ‘cloche hats’, bobbed her hair and favoured shorter skirts.

 <— This is from ‘The Artist’ you should watch it! It’s really good! Lots of 20’s and 30’s Flapper fashion.

In the 20’s we also saw the introduction of Art Deco and influenced fashion, architecture and art. As the 20’s became known as the ‘Roaring 20’s’


The thing that inspires me about the 20’s is the smooth transition of fashion for young women from something very utilitarian to something that had a lot of glamour. Making a very diverse new trend of fashion.

Chanel who was a main designer around this point was credited with liberating women from the constraints of the “corseted silhouette” and popularizing the acceptance of a sportive, casual chic as the feminine standard in the post-World War 1 era. As a prolific fashion creator, Chanel exerted influence extending beyond couture clothing; her design aesthetic was realized in jewelry, handbags, and fragrance.

That’s all from the 20’s 🙂
