New Arrivals! Lace and Tulle Gowns with Glam 1930s Flair

I absolutely adore the fashions from the 1930s. In the  1920s  the trend was toward a more loose fitting silhouette that reflected womens’ rebellion against the restrictive styles of the turn of the century. But when the 30s rolled around dresses became more form fitting with an emphasis on  the waistline and back.

Also, in the 1930s  designer Madliene Vionnet popularized the “bias cut”  with her sensual figure flattering gowns. Many of the glamorous silver screen stars at the time wore costumes of this style in their movies, fueling the trend for these looks.

Because of this, the fashions from the 1930s tend to be very feminine, sleek and body conscious, but in a very classy way.

30s dresses like the one above inspired my latest offering of gowns. Capturing the romantic elegance and styling of this decade,  they’d make a lovely  choice for a spring or summer wedding for a vintage loving bride or  her wedding guests. Click on images for more information.
