Girls 1920s Costumes
In the years following the aftermath of World War I, there was much worldwide prosperity and a newly found world wide interest in the arts and new forms of technology. This era is often referred to as “The Roaring Twenties” in popular culture due to the ideals of decadence and indulgence that were propagated following the tough times experienced during the first World War.
Social and cultural advancements took place in major metropolitan areas such as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Paris, New Orleans, Philadelphia and London. People were generally doing well and everything was booming, especially interests in things such as the fine arts and other creative aspects of culture.
“Modernity” was the largest collective ideal to come out of the 1920’s, with so many advancements in technology at such a suddenly quick pace, almost anything seemed possible with technology. The 1920’s gave rise to some of the most popular technologies we use today, such as automobiles, radio, and moving pictures or “movies” as we call them in the modern day. Another very important cultural aspect of the 1920’s was the women’s suffrage movement, which culminated with women gaining the right to vote in the United States and thus setting an example for the rest of the world.
