|The Origin History of the 1920s Flapper Dress The Flapper Dress of the 1920sThe flapper dress is one of the most recognizable garments of the Roaring Twenties. The loose waist, the slim fit, the shortened hem, and simple construction are all details of women s 1920s fashions. Of course the 1920s weren t just flappers, speakeasies gangsters, although these are what the decade is remembered for. The fashions of the 1920s exist in stark contrast to the Victorian era fashions. The Victorian era was marked by women dressed in petticoats, corsets, and crinolines. These torture devices accentuated women s breasts and butt, while effectively making her immobile through use of fashion accessories that smashed her internal organs, cut off circulation to her legs, and literally decreased the function of her lungs. The flapper dress, and the dresses of the 1920s in general, were designed for beauty, movement and comfort. They "let go of the waistline" as famous designer Coco Chanel said. The first half of the 1920s, women s dresses still reflected the "old fashioned" dresses of the previous generations, they were billowy, frumpy, and shapeless. Not very attractive at all. They were the dresses you d imagine your grandmother would wear (sorry grandma). By 1925 women s dresses were evolving under the watchful eyes of fashion design legends like Paul Poriet, Coco Chanel, Madeleine Vionnet, Jean Patou, and Jeanne Lanvin. (more on each of these designers below). The developing fashions were primarily French, Paris was, and arguably still is, the fashion hub of the Universe. As the styles of 1920s fashions evolved the dresses became more "streamlined" the excess materials were stripped away, the hemline rose to the woman s knee (how indecent!!).1920s fashions reflected the society from which they arose. This was a time of rapid change, rapid movement, and rapid development inn many aspects of society. Technology made it possible to circumnavigate the globe in a matter of a day or two via airplane, whereas 10 years earlier it would take a month. Automobiles allowed young people to travel long distances in relatively short amounts of time, making the cities accessible to young folks who wanted to enjoy the liquor of the illegal speakeasies and the sounds of Jazz. The Art Deco movement inspired and influenced the fashion. The geometric Fashion Moncler Down Coats With Zip Women Dark Blue shapes, the bright colors, and stark contrasts began being reproduced in the dresses of Paris and New York. All of this social movement reflected the progress that inspired the entire generation, people believed in "manifesting destiny" and that the good times would never end. My mother used to say that if one lives long Moncler Vest S Women Amarige Liberation Lattice With Hat enough most all styles seem to be repeated again in time. Guess there is just so much that can be done to alter clothes. Men s ties are a perfect example. Thin to wide to medium and then over again. A few fashions deserve to die and stay buried! Haha! Dolores Monet 2 years ago from East Coast, United States Level 5 Commenter Though a "glimpse of stocking could be quite shocking," the styles of the 1920 s offered women more freedom than ever before. The Flapper changed the very concept of fashion for the rest of the century. Thank you both for the comments, I realize this hub is woefully incomplete. I am in the process of developing it. Simone Smith 2 years ago from San Francisco The flapper dress was such a fascinating Online Moncler Outlet garment. especially when one considers its significance, and how different it was from the predominant styles from the previous decade. Loved the refresher on its origins!
The Paris Parade Of Fashion Old Houses Hired Fresh Designers To Pep Up Fall The Styles Were Low key, Or Way Out. Celebrities Showed Up: Kate Winslet, Madonna. And The Models Are Going To Get Bigger! FROM INQUIRER WIRE SERVICES This article contains information from the Associated Press, Washington Post, Reuters and Knight Ridder News ServicePosted: March 16, 1998 PARIS Sonia Rykiel one of the first to throw bras out of fashion in the rebel year of 1968 celebrated 30 years in the fashion business. Cristina Ortiz did away with black and debuted in deep blue for the long lived house of Lanvin. At the Givenchy show, Titanic star Kate Winslet sat next to Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, owner of Givenchy). Amid the usual array of buyers, models, celebrities and designers, low key and way out designs, came the announcement that when fall Moncler Parka arrives, the City of Light will attempt to dazzle the fashion crowd with models who are not rail thin! The announcement came early in the week, as the French promised they would have more normal sized models walking down the catwalk, and will introduce larger sized clothing. Sacre bleu! But even that bit of a shocker didn t dominate the news for long. People flock to Paris to check out what s new, what s recycled and what they might wear to the Oscars, which is reportedly what Madonna and Winslet were up to. But back to the raison d etre for fashion week. Ortiz, one of the ranks of new faces brought in by the French houses to pep up flagging sales, resisted the temptation to burst on the scene with flashy tricks or gimmicks. Formerly style coordinator Mens Moncler Sale at Prada, she lists marine biology as one of her interests, and there was a strange underwater silence in the show, though it was backed by the usual mood enhancing music. There were stylized floppy jogging suits, satiny skirts with a little ruche at the hip or lower down the hem, and a seamless top wrapped round the bust and held together at the back by a single spider s web of thread. Karl Lagerfeld sent a collection of classic full forms spinning through a Paris mansion for Chanel on Friday. There were plenty of bidders for the eminently wearable pieces, which showed Chanel at its most generous. The skirts were longer, the shapes often fuller than Chanel s spring and summer vision. Besides the Chanel signature black and white, there were new tweeds in big boxy pleats to camouflage the bumps and curves that flawed ordinary bodies cannot avoid. An A line skirt offered pleated panels at the side before tapering in at the calves roominess its model had no use for but which would not go amiss among the more matronly Chanel patrons. For evening wear, there were slits all over. The range included the askance exposure dress, a long satin slip layered with gauze and with a see through window slanting over the hip to expose the sparkle of a diamante panty strap. Collections from Dries Van Noten and Christian Dior grew out of the belief in the value of wounded or broken beauty. Perfection, for the designers behind these lines, is too sterile. The collection Van Moncler Coats Women Sale Noten presented Tuesday was filled with the magical imagery of Nepal and Tibet. One could envision the nubby sweaters, stamped leather boots and rustic fur coats being worn decades ago by Sherpa guides. There was a black car coat with squares of chocolate brown fur along the hem; bolero length shearlings are the color of bark; and a mid calf woodsman s coat, created from separate blocks of fur, reminds one of a time when furs were essential for warmth and not merely a luxury item. Designer John Galliano at the house of Dior was captivated by the vision of faded opulence, old money and displaced royalty.
