Roaring 20's Inspiration

American VOGUE, early by Paul Poiret. When these pictures appeared in the magazine, Poiret's fashion star was already on the decline although he was instrumental in championing many trends that continued well into the 1920s including the fascination with all things exotic.

1920s wedding, Melbourne, Australia. Very interesting diamond details on the skirts of the bridesmaids, plus veils that wrap under the chin as well as over the forehead.

1920's was the age of new-found optimism, excitement and euphoria, but also a time of lavish excess & decadence. This was the age when any kind of "giggle water" was drunk & Absinthe in particular was drunk with carefree abandon........
