Here is a little history of the Flapper Dress to set the scene.
Socio economic changes that occurred during the First World War 1914-18 and became accepted, changed the role of women in a way that no amount of campaigning by a few liberated ladies could have achieved.
The 1920s costume history image in our minds of a woman of the ‘Roaring Twenties’ is actually likely to be the image of a Flapper Dress. Flappers did not truly emerge until 1926. Flapper fashion embraced all things and styles modern. A fashionable flapper had short sleek hair, a shorter than average shapeless shift dress, a chest as flat as a board, wore make up and applied it in public, smoked with a long cigarette holder, exposed her limbs and epitomised the spirit of a reckless rebel who danced the nights away in the 1920s cool Jazz Age.
The French called the flapper fashion style the ‘garçonne’.
