All That Jazz – 1920s Fashion and Social Revolution

16 October @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This Zoom lecture will examine the popular tastes and fashions which emerged during the 1920s against a background of political upheaval and sweeping social change. The jazz decade was personified by flapper freedom of movement borne of free thinking and mores. From Coco Chanel to the Charleston, this talk will look at the era’s enigmatic personalities and players, designers and debutantes, and the daring styles that defined them.
Our presenter Jane Wilson is a writer and social historian who currently lectures at the Fashion and Textile Museum. She has published and lectured on women’s and fashion history at the National Army Museum (Women’s Civilian and Military Experiences During Wartime) as well as the Women’s Institute (Jazz Age Fashion) alongside her previous guided museum visits to KCWC (The History of Liberty, Missoni, and Zandra Rhodes).
