Birmingham, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/20/2013 -- Book Publisher Bennion Kearny is delighted to announce the publication of the first book in a compendium of style across the decades – “Dress the 1920s: From Flapper Chic to The Great Gatsby”.
From the continuing global success of period productions like The Great Gatsby, Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire, the remarkable style of the Roaring ‘20s enjoys resonance today. A time of romance and decadence in the aftermath of the First World War, the era was also one of great social and stylistic change, in which female dressing expressed women’s emerging emancipation.
Dress the 1920s: From Flapper Chic to The Great Gatsby is an inspired and quirky combination of vintage guide and self-makeover manual. It spans social history highlights to ‘20s image and fashion instruction, and is packed with tips from sourcing and shopping to styling and storing. It is aimed at women who want to get the Great Gatsby look providing a fun and focused must-have for all style and culture lovers.
With today’s worldwide interest in vintage in mind, vintage aficionado, writer and stylist Julie Burns, has created the first in a series of decade dedicated dressing guides - guides that are both accessible and informed in approach. As invaluable for the vintage virgin as for the purist; the serious collector and the dabbler; the fashionista to the student on a shoestring, and those in search of alternative yet timeless style, it ticks all today’s boxes for practical advice on budget-friendly, investment dressing that’s eco-conscious yet exclusive, and as individual the people who embrace it.
The ebook is available on Kindle from May 13th 2013, and costs $3.79
