Trend report: Flappers
They say fashion mimics art; I say fashion mimics film.
Fashion designers are visual creatures, and it's no wonder that they are forever being inspired by stories told on the silver screen. It may not be due out until the end of the year, but designers have already got on board for the upcoming Great Gatsby movie.
Gucci sent glam flapper-inspired garments down the runway for its spring collection, and at Chloe there were casual dropwaists in tomboyish styles.
Closer to home, Kate Sylvester offers up tassled tops and dresses from her current winter collection while Augustine International and Blak both give Gucci's dropwaists a run for their money.
If dropwaists aren't quite your thing then make a nod to the Gatsby trend with flapper-inspired accessories - long necklaces, pearls, headgear worn low on the forehead and dainty strapped heels.
