The Fashion & Textile Museum in London is currently showing clothing and fashion photography from the 1920s, “a glittering display of haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion from 1919 to 1929”. According to the exhibition catalogue, “women’s clothing in the 1920s reflected dizzying social change on an unprecedented scale. From Paris and London to New York and Hollywood, the decade following the Great War offered the modern woman a completely new style of dressing.”

The exhibition programme includes Charleston dance classes and a talk by Caroline Cox about “1920s Hair & Beauty”.

The Guardian also features some examples of the fashion photography on display at the museum.
