Vancouver: Jazz-Age Chic

Vancouver: Jazz-Age Chic


This year, the Roaring Twenties are everywhere. And why not? Silk, gin, jazz, flappers...what's not to like?

To get a taste of vintage Jazz Age style, stop by the Museum of Vancouver from now until September 23, for "Art Deco Chic: Extravagant glamour between the wars."

This fashion exhibit includes over 66 items from the private collection of Ivan Sayers and Claus Jahnke, as well as from the Museum of Vancouver.

Art Deco style has its roots in 1920s Paris, and represented a deep rift with previous fashion conventions: hems were shorter, waists were dropped and let out, and hats were designed to emphasize the new, bob hairstyles.

The movment also had a significant architectural impact, visible in Vancouver through the Marine Building and the Burrard Street Bridge.

Chanel, Lanvin, Vionnet, Patou, Shiaparelli... our silk-stocking clad knees are getting wobbly.
