Rubber Flapper

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."


1920's fashion is still present. To me it's no surprise. It was a time when people made a big step to the future and with no sentiment said good bye to the previous era. The change embraced all fields of life; manufacturing, technology, music. And the revolution of that time still has wide repercussions. But the greatest change took place in women themselves. They were fed up with waiting for company of men in everything. (note that many young men had died in the WWI). They wanted to have FUN, FUN, FUN! And the first thing they did was to kick out old-fashioned torture devices like corsets and crinolines. Freedom reigned!

Contemporary designers are still  reaching for a great variety of cuts and patterns dating back to 1920's. One of my favourite collection inspired by flappers was the one created by Galliano for Dior for season A/W 2009/2010

Some time ago I couldn't help myself and designed a rubber flapper dress. Dress is made with vinyl gloves and rubber bands. It took a w h i l e... to make it! The results below :)

And a bit of Polish music from that times but in new arrangements. Enjoy! :)
