The Glamour Years. Jewellery & Fashion 1929-59 Andrew Prince
In this talk which follows on from “Downton to Gatsby”, Andrew shows how the Great Depression and the Second World war had such an extraordinary impact on fashion and jewellery design with the rise of Cinema and Hollywood.
From the likes of Marlene Dietrich to Grace Kelly, he guides you through the various Screen Goddesses, how they were portrayed and what they gave to such dazzling effect. He also shows that with the development of advertising, labour saving devices and leisure time, people had more opportunities to enjoy themselves and spend money on the finer things in life, as well as how the political events of the time influenced design and what was worn.
Furthermore, The Belle Epoque and Art Deco styles did not end at the outbreak of the Second World War, but combined, to flower again with Christian Dior’s “New Look”.
