Now that I’m on a 1920s kick, I really want to take a trip to Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition Modern Spirit: Fashion of the 1920s is on display until February 10 and features some of the prettiest dresses in the collection.
I remember the three in the image above from my time working there. The red Chanel on the right is so delicate and amazing. It was one of my favorites in the whole Fashion Design department.
Modern Spirit aims to look beyond the typical iconography of the 1920s to examine “the evolution of clothing and accessories as an expression of freedom, intellectualism, sexuality and athleticism in this decade that marked the beginning of the modern age.” Designers Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and Madeleine Vionnet are highlighted among the more than 40 ensembles on display. I can only imagine how glamorous this show is.
