20's tiered drop waist flapper dress

20's tiered drop waist flapper dress

June 12, 2011

The flapper redefined modern womanhood.

The 1920s is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. It was the decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and began to wear more comfortable stylish clothes. Not the brassy flapper as defined, we see a more classical design. Displayed is an example of a tea gown, tea frock, garden party dress. Translucent fabric's like silk chiffon or organdy, and even newly created rayon were being used in these stylized frocks. Love the way this dress is designed with it's tiered drop skirt in the form of falling leaves.

Floral Prints of the 1930's
June 6, 2011

In the 1930s, the public began to feel the effects of the Great Depression, the dresses of the 30s became simple in design, the dresses were more Slender fitting to the womans figure than those of the 20s, The designers of the 30s were looking for a Romantic look, a feminine style, the use of printing on fabrics with silk screening allowed a design on fabric, until the 1930s this had not been used in America there were a few Countries that had the ability as in China, France and Italy. A breakthrough for American Textile and Floral printing on fabric was the new approach to colorful designs, to capture the changing trends. Florals started out as a copy of Botanical garden scenes, big bold floral with subtle colors to attract the eye, with time increased color added to the printing process, without the limits. Colors became more vibrant, eye catching florals. Here is an example of the changing trends in 30s fabric's, using the silk screening process. Notice the vibrant large florals.. A dark bold background was a noted way to catch the attention. The addition to Floral printed fabrics began.

Adolph Schuman Founder Of Lillie Ann

Monday, April 4, 2011

Adolph Schuman according to Time Magazine began his company with $2000 he borrowed from a bank. Schuman was quoted as saying, "In the Coat & Suit industry you either got to think or die", well it's quite clear by the success of the business, Mr. Schuman was a thinker. The company began in San Francisco and was named after his wife. By the early 50's the company had grossed $7,100,000 last year, selling through 1,400 retail stores. Schuman's quest to import fabrics from France and Italy at reasonable costs began his "Trade, Not Aid" plan.
European textile mills were accustomed to making a large number of weaves in small quantities at high unit cost. His six year plan helped European textile mills to become more cost efficient and pay employees a decent wage.
