Hello Guys, so I collaborated with the amazing Toyosi Kekere-Ekun for a fun shoot we’re putting together to explore the adaptation of 1920s style.

The 1920s is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. It was the decade in which women first abandoned the more restricting fashions of past years and began to wear more comfortable clothes (such as short skirts or trousers hence It is easily one of the most influential, creative and unique turns in modern fashion history. The most interesting thing you will notice about 1920s fashion is the shape of the silhouette. It is strikingly straight and flat. While most fashions accentuate the figure in some way or another, it almost seemed like, at times, any shape other than straight was a big no-no. This straight shape is a very distinct element of 1920s style.

The Aristocrats wore very modest necklines, above the collarbone in most cases, waistband and calf to ankle length with accessories, shift dresses with low hip line. They accessorised with Turbans, Hats, Pearls, Headbands, Pearls and umbrellas.

Make up: More plain faced, very subtle with an even skin tone, pale skin was a sign of the upper class so minimal makeup, smooth skin, nude palettes.

It was quite easy pulling pieces as my mother has quite an interesting collection of vintage wears luck me right? In the next couple of weeks I will be exploring the style of the Flapper Girls.
