Ziegfeld Follies

Posted on September 19 2008

Ziegfeld Follies

From 1907 through 1936 New York City's Broadway was alive with the sights and sounds of the elaborate Ziegfeld Follies, lavish shows featuring stunning chorus girls and top entertainers all in show stopping costumes. Louise Brooks, The Dolly Sisters, and Josephine Baker all graced the stage during this period. Now their famous style is back again!

The catwalks showed plenty of drop waists and Cloche hats (a fitted, bell-shaped hat that was popular during the 1920s. Cloche is the French word for bell.) Kimonos were back too, very popular in the 20s as ladies lounge wear.

We here at Beyond Retro have received some truly great 20's style dress and our staff have gotten into the act too!
