I'm in New York this week, enjoying the festive season. The windows of Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue are a highlight, filled with elaborately-costumed mannequins, dressed in twenties-style. Here is one of them. Her dress reminds me of the treasure that Dianne used as inspiration for her wonderful Threads challenge. The chevron and zigzag are seen in many of the costumes, and suggest an Art Deco influence.
