Flapper style

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.


  1. Very similar but slinky and short!

  2. wow - is this for real. it looks terrifc. are you perhaps going to see the alvin ailey dance group while you are there?

  3. As the kids would say "how cool is that". Fantastic

  4. Firstly, lucky you for being in New York with all the glitz for Christmas and secondly, well done for spotting the dress in the shop window.

    Here in the UK we are in the final stages of the latest 'Strictly Come Dancing' and the Charleston and Tango have featured a lot in the last couple of heats. Very topical.

    Enjoy New York,
