Last Friday, I had another photo shoot, this time with this beautiful green satin 1920's dress. Its interesting how fashion from different eras has changed so much. I usually wear clothes from the 40's and 50's so this sleeveless, short skirt, slinky 20's dress made me feel very naked. Wearing this dress made me realize how shocking the rebellious flapper fashion must have been at the time. The dress came with a matching sash that I wasn't quite sure what to do with so I tied it in my hair. This was my first attempt at waving using a curling iron. It was very simple to do and yielded pretty decent results, I think!
This is part of an ongoing project, shooting models in these antique garments in an effort to preserve them in photos. Some of these things are so old that they begin to fall apart as we shoot in them, much like this sweet 20's dress. The photos will be displayed at a small, local museum and kept on record for future historians. It's such an honor to be a part of this amazing project.
