1930’s- Glamorous age of Women’s Fashion


The era was the return to gentle and more feminine appearance. The shoulder and waistline curves were emphasised. Tidy and sweet at the day time and glamorous  at night.

Biased cuts, lobster prints, embellishments, embroidery and metal work could be seen in the dresses. Fur sleeves also prevalent during that time. Gowns were made in satins, crepe-de-chines, silks, crepes and chiffons by cross cutting the fabric.

Hats, beret, turban, cloche were were well coordinated. They used prominent colours on lips and faux eyelashes. Their eyebrows were thinner.

Kathrine Hepburn and Joan Crawford were some of the icons during that era.

Men continued with their relaxed clothing and narrow trousers.
