Chapter 1


After the end of the A' World War, women are becoming independent. It is the period of so-called flapper girls, who live intensely and provocatively. Women smoke, gain sexual freedom and now can vote. They read magazines like Vogue, The Queen, Gazette and Harper's. The corset is repealed, giving even more freedom, clothes have baggy lines and for first time legs are revealed. Knitted swimwear is now acceptable attire for the beach and established by the Australian swimmer Anette Kellerman. In 1921, Chanel launched the famous Chanel No 5. Clothes' silhouette is loose with a belt at the waist.  In 1925 the line rises to the knee and for the first time after two years above the knee. The dresses are embroidered, have fringes and the fabrics usually are airy and transparent. The coats are heavy and they are worn around the body like a kimono. Sleeveless blouse, deep neckline and for first time sweaters come to fashion world. The skirts have tucks and they are decorated with bows, flowers and beads and later with geometric designs.


The fur is a favourite accessory, while Benito is becoming known for his furs of ermine in a tube shape. The stockings are made of silk on skin tones. The shoes which have a toggle in the ankle, are comfortable for easier dancing movements. The cigarette and long pipes are used widely, even by women. The pearls are women best friend, and Klos hats fit perfectly on the head, going down to the level of eyebrows, showing the short haircuts.


Make up. Eye shadows are in dark colours, like black and grey, just like lips, which are in purple and burgundy.

Hair. Short haircuts, known as «a la garçonne», with bangs, while hairdo is with straight hair or wavy.


Coco Chanel. She started as a hat designer and later she became a fashion icon elevating the feminine elegance. The camellia, her favourite flower, and the pearls are now symbols of fashion. Chanel creates the suits and the famous “little black dress”: a simple small dress which reaches the knees, has a round neckline and long sleeves. Her clothes’ sense of freedom and convenience made her the most adorable woman but also established her one of the most important designer in fashion world.

Other designers who influenced the decade:

Anita Loos, Clara Bow, Louise Brooks, Marion Morehouse, Josephine Baker, Kiki de Montparnasse, Nancy Cunard, Coco Chanel.

This is my first post for 2012. It is a new idea that I wanted to make it from the beginning of the new year...I want to present you how was the fashion in every decade. I just hope to love this my search I learned a lot of things which are really important in my fashion knowledge! So I wish that this decision will be useful to you. Enjoy it!

Happy New Year!
Happy New Dreams!
Happy New Experiences!
Happy New Life!
