I thought i would make another post of vintage photos but this turned out to be mostly about the 1920's. In that decade women gave up their constricting dressing styles. In 1920 the Nineteenth Amendment gave most women the right to vote in the US. Though India had to wait till 1950,the 2nd wave of feminism was happening around this time, for this to happen,mainly since it was a colonial state till 1947.
I personally love the hats from any era but these were bold style statements. Imagine how sensational it was that you could see women's bare legs out in the public for the first time in centuries. Women became more active and hence needed more practical clothing.
Coco Chanel was the most influential figure in fashion embracing short hair,incorporating men's clothes in a female wardrobe and discarding the corset. Elsa Schiaparelli is one key Italian designer of this decade who was heavily influenced by the "beyond the real" art and incorporated it into her designs.
