Jazz Age: Fashion & Photographs
Women cut their hair, smoke cigarettes in pipes and wear long pearl strings. In the ‘roaring twenties’ a radical social change is emerging, which is reflected in a new zeitgeist, a sharp increase in prosperity and change.
From Paris to London, New York and Hollywood, in the post-World War I period, modern women fall for a completely new style of clothing, which also symbolizes her conquered freedom. From sportswear, beautifully printed dresses, fringed ‘flapper’ dresses and beaded evening wear to velvet capes, kimonos and silk pajamas; with more than 150 varied pieces of clothing and accessories from a large private collection, the exhibition offers a glimpse into the glamor, excess and frivolity of this modern decade.
