Flappers A-Go -Go! ( Part 2)

Our last post features fantastic white beaded velvet 1920s bandeau. Now this is the perfect dress to go with it. Ivory silk crepe back satin with wonderful silver and white beading . Not only are the scrolls wandering up the body, there are panels of diagonally set beaded fringe to match. Rose montee stones were used to highlight the beading and edge the necklines. This dinner/ dance dress illustrates the 1920s fashion aesthetic beautifully. The elements? Straight as a column cut, scoop neck with 'T' back, sleeveless, all the design attention at the hips and hem,just enough beading at the neckline and armholes to look finished, and finally all the the movement provided by the wonderful beaded fringe. Bonus points for a label - Steinberg's St. Louis.

Thank Mr. Steinberg. You efforts are still appreciated.
