1920s: The era of Art Deco, of Surrealism, of prohibition, of motorcars, and telephones being available for the middle class. In 1920 women gain the right to vote. African Americans push for equality and began to garner fame in film, business, music and literature. England and America is blossoming after World War 1, with booming industry and inventions. While other European countries suffer lack and unemployment. Radical political changes are born. In 1922 Mussolini creates the first fascist government. In 1923 the tomb of Tutankhamun is opened by Howard Carter, and baseball star Babe Ruth hits another home run to the delight of his fans. The โ€œcelebrityโ€ is born thanks to mass media coverage, new improved motion picture houses, radios, and phonographs. Charlie Chaplin, Lilian Gish, Clara Bow, Rudolph Valentino, Mary Pickford, Louise Brooks and more grace the silver screen grabbing the affection, laughs and interest of the public. Record play out the music of Rudy Vallee, Paul Whiteman, Jelly Roll Morton and Bessie Smith. Literature is published at fantastic rate from authors like Fitzgerald, Hemingway and D.H. Laurence. In 1928 a man named Walt Disney introduced to the world to a little mouse name Mickey, and 1929 saw the first films with a completely African American cast.

While there is still a great interest in the 1920s, I have found that today’s view of the era has degraded into something very different from the original. The perception of 1920s fashion is easily one of the most stereotyped and misunderstood out of all fashion eras. Women are often portrayed wearing a generic clothing with no period tailoring or subtle detailing. Some come close, while many are just completely and horrendously wrong. Most of this degradation can be accredited to people watching films that take artistic liberties because filmmakers think that the audience will not relate to accurate costumes or they just don’t bother doing research at all. Also to blame is Halloween costumes which are usually as inexpensive as possible and again cater to the modern taste, and then there are celebrities, who do not care about historic accuracy but just want to look sexy or edgy. Thus this odd and tasteless image of the 1920s is born. In this video we will sweep away these layers of misinformation to reveal the true craftsmanship and beauty of 1920s fashion for women
