It wasn’t enough that the latter part of New York Fashion Week was dancing the Charleston (well, not literally), or that a select few London shows saw their waistlines drop. Now, Milan has jumped on board the 1920s trend, and that was just in the first day. You may have noticed some vintage-inspired looks at Gucci or even Alberta Ferretti’s light-as-air exits at the beginning of the show.
Filming of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby is underway in Australia and we think designers are getting a little inspired. The film will likely make the festival circuit well into next year making these looks perfect fodder for the red carpet. It wouldn’t be the first time film has influenced the fashion industry. Ralph Lauren, whose latest show was like a 1920s time warp, had direct creative involvement in the 1974 version of the film. It seems this trend is more strategic than coincidental.
