The Art Deco influence was a consistent presence in many of the Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion shows. From simple shifts to short and kicky pleats, there was a neo flapper around virtually every corner. If you're in doubt that The Great Gatsby was an aesthetic influence for US and European designers, just check out the movie logo and the geometrically patterned looks below. Coincidence? I think not.
But Deco wasn't the only vintage aesthetic choice on the runways; There was an element of Edwardian to Deco transition in some presentations that was decidedly Downton Abbey-inspired. Lace, embroidery and feminine cuts are the perfect homage to a lovely show. Can't you just see a modern Lady Mary rocking all of these dresses?
