1920's Women's Fashion Show Illustrations

Updated on January 11, 2014

AUTUMN 1920 FASHION PLATES FROM THE HARRY ANGELO COMPANY

This website is dedicated to 1920's women's fashions. The turn of the calendar page from 1919 to 1920 brought out many new styles, most showing a bit of leg which was almost unheard of in previous decades. The 1920's was also the era of the "Flapper" and although the styles depicted here are from the early 1920's and a little less risque than later in the decade, you can see from these illustrations the direction that fashion was headed.

This is a rare look at these illustrations. The information in this catalog was limited to only parties of interest for purchasing these styles for sale in their own boutiques. It was not information that was available to the general public. It is therefore a scarce look at Chanel and other styles that were only seen by the era's elite.

There's also a little quiz fun in this website. Do you really know your 1920's trivia? Enjoy and please don't forget to tell us you like this site and also leave your comments near the end. Thanks for visiting!

All illustrations and information on this site are from 1920 and are thus from the Public Domain.

      I couldn't stay away any longer. This was my paternal grandmother's era and it would have suited her so well. I would love to wear every one of these outfits!

      The 1920s is my favorite era! I absolutely love 1920s fashion, not to mention the music, silent movies, the beautiful cars, and the attitude! :)
