1920s Overview

 The 20s was the beginning of the media age. People got ideas from the radio, copying films or reading fashion magazines such as Vogue or vanity fair.     
 The coats were heavy, the shirts were sleeveless and the neckline was low. The first sweaters and pleated skirts were in the shops. It was all about bows, beads and flowers. Snuff boxes, long pipes, jewellery with pearls, cloche hats and short haircuts "a la gar├žonne were all very popular.

1920s fashion is set to become very popular as the newest remake of "The Great Gatsby" hits the big screens on the 26th of December 2012 in Ireland. Having read the book and seen this fantastic trailer I am really looking forward to this movie.
