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.
