The Great Gatsby’s Influence on Fashion

The world is buzzing, loudly, about all things Gatsby. Unless you have been living in a cave you probably know that this Baz Luhrmann directed remake of the novel and Robert-Redford-starring film of the same name, is set to have a spectacular opening weekend at the box office. E! News is projecting The Great Gatsby to have a debut north of $40 million. We’ll have to wait and see what Leo’s star power can do these days!

As with any epic movie spectacle, rich with music and fashion, the rest of the world can’t help but want to be a part of it too. Addicted to fashion bloggers lately, every day I am finding more and more fantastic articles written about the fashion of the Gatsby era and ways to infuse its sensibility into your current wardrobe.

I especially liked this one from From tennis whites to drop wasted dresses to graphic prints and deco jewelry, the Gatsby era brings with it an excitement and freshness that the world hasn’t seen in quite some time. From the feminine feathered embellishments to the shift dresses and t-strap shoes, it’s quite easy to embrace the trend.  Oh, and let’s not forget the FRINGE!

While the influence for our spring collection is about 20 years past the Gatsby era, the look and feel of it is decidedly glamorous. During the time that the Gatsby’s were partying in the Hampton’s, the west coast was beginning to embrace what we now refer to as Old Hollywood glamour. When looking at all of these amazing Gatsby inspired fashions I keep thinking how our designs have just enough of that flavor to help you embrace your inner Gatsby as well.
