Normally for my posts I include several photos of me at the terrific events I get to attend. This time, you won’t see one. No, this time I’m going to focus on the lovely ladies who were featured in the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles fashion show at Ticket to the Twenties, a 1920s themed event at the Homestead Museum in the City of Industry. After all, who doesn’t like a terrific dress, right? As I’ve been to this event several times, most recently last year, I won’t go too much in to all of the outstanding activities the weekend features… well, maybe I’ll delve in to it just a little.
As I haven’t gone much in to detail prior about the fashion show, let me tell you a bit about it. Each year the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles puts on a fashion show on one of the days of Ticket to the Twenties. This year the show was curated by Charlotte del Rose, a long time member of the organization. Charlotte can look you up and down, grab something from her racks, say try it on, and it will fit like a glove. She is amazing. The show this year featured exquisite dresses, many of them for sale if you fancied a new frock. Had I known one of those dresses would have fit me I would have snatched it up. Instead a lovely friend grabbed it instead. I was envious, but she looks grand in it.
My challenge with these photos is I struggled between which shots to show. Do I reveal the lovely full-length images of the dress (with the lovely parking lot in the backdrop). Or do I show nice close ups? I decided to give you the full length versions, so please forgive the parking lot in the distance. I hope the images please and inspire you.
Wasn’t that a nice change of pace?
