The Great Gatsby

blogEntryThumbnailOver on the history girls join blog I have been thinking about The Great Gatsby - do visit and see what was said! i am a fan of 1920s fashion and fell in love with a particular hat in the recent film. Fashion during WW1 was obviously much more limited but perhaps it was here that the changes began. I had to do a lot of research of what was being worn for Dusk and Dawn. I also researched the dances as the culture had shifted so much as society changed very quickly. This is the era of the one step and the tango - all considered very risqué. There is something to be said for the sensuality of these dances compared to the blatant ones we’re used to - restrained passion makes for a better plot in a dance, don’t you think?
