History has always had an incredible influence on what the fashions, on the runways as well as on the street. The political, economic, geographic and social characteristics of an era are what defines the attitudes as well as clothing choices of a particular culture, city, country, or era.
The powerful, rebellious, and surrealistic 1920s have held a strong fascination with the art and fashion world for many years and references to the era have become increasingly prevalent in popular culture, with movies such as “The Great Gatsby” (the fifth film adaptation of the classically tragic novel written by Scott Fitzgerald in the early 1920s) and the critically acclaimed, silent black and white film, “The Artist” influencing the collections of designers throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
Our black beaded fringe dress is very much reminiscent of the short, extravagant flapper dresses that dominated the era and so we decided to create our own outfit inspired by the roaring twenties, but with an earthy, bohemian twist that is true to the Indiverve brand. We also decided to pay a little bit of tribute to other local, Vancouver-based designers such as this recycled fur clutch by Jola V Designs, and these custom-painted shoes by B.C brand “Cocopunkz”. There are countless ways to wear this dress that would completely alter its look and feel. We encourage all of you to tell us what you would wear with our Beaded Fringe Dress!
