Jazz is one of the genres that impacted to different artistic disciplines around the world. Different instruments, rhythm and composition of many pieces inspire and spin a world of possibilities around its influence, and fashion is no exception. Definitely one of my favorite periods are 20 years and just has a clear influence of the women who accompanied Jazz with their dances, their locker rooms detailed, delicate and full of brightness and sensuality, which is simultaneously meant that they draw upon a decade that would change the conception of many artists of the scene.
Who did not want dress up girl flapper? Or imitated the jazzy style to leave a Friday night. Jazz is a clear influence of the catwalks, shop windows and now the museums. With more than 150 pieces, this coming September 23, the Fashion and Textile Museum in London opens 1920s Jazz Age: Fashion & Photographs, an exhibition that reflects major social changes of this decade of glamour, frivolity and excess, modernity, both in Paris and London and New York and Hollywood in which highlights to the rhythms of jazz , the dance and the joie de vivre marked this was and they promoted a new way of dressing.
The central objective of this exhibition is to demonstrate the influence and beauty of jazz and the costumes boom this time at the same time it seeks dialogue with the spectators and in many cases break with those schemes, promote the conversation, which is can feel attracted to the culture of jazz and its different shades.
Content presents a glimpse of the Haute Couture and fashion Prêt-à-porter from 1919 to 1929, collection that reflects the dizzying on a scale unprecedented social change, since it is the decade that followed the first world war and which offered a new style of dress to the modern woman. This impressive selection includes printed day dresses, sportswear, the beautiful and famous dressed flapper fringed, evening dresses, layers of velvet and silk pajamas, all that reveals the glamour, excess and the modernity of the Decade.
The sample is also interesting since it complements different influences on garments with colorful illustrations by Gordon Conway from archive of illustrated London News to Mary Evans and photographs by Abbé, Beaton, Man Ray, and Baron de Meyer.
Certainly, an exhibition that many die to see and that certainly put on the map of research in culture and fashion a was that it has transcended to the present day.
