She is said to have made men wear trousers.
The flapper’s dress, now a traditional outfit, was designed by Louis XIII in 1533 and remained popular with women during the age of dress reform.
In the late 1600s, the fashion spread to the United States and Britain and now women all over the world are wearing dresses in their wedding suits while also wearing trousers and shoes.
Is it possible the style originated in the 19th century?
No, according to the British Fashion Council:
“There is absolutely no historical evidence that the flapper was the first woman to wear trousers outside of her wedding ensemble. That honour goes to Mimi Wintour.”
How does a woman become a flapper?
Some women can have a lifelong fascination with dressing in this area, becoming a flapper after having a great fashion sense.
It is known in the flapper community: women who dress for fun, love to dress for other people and are always learning new styles and clothes from other women (and sometimes from friends as well).
The most famous flapper: Joan Osborne
Flapper and former model Joan Osborne moved to New York in the early 60s.
She later studied at the British Fashion Institute, studying fashion design from the 1940s to the 70s, and after graduating, was employed as an assistant to designer Alexander McQueen.
When Osborne met fashion designer Donna Karan, she became her model and model of choice.
Osborne moved to London in 1983 when she ran a modelling agency. Within two months she had built her career and a string of fashion and lifestyle photographers and photographers began asking her to pose for them.
The following year, Osborne appeared as a model in designer David Koe, who was looking for a model for his line of handbags.
She became an international fashion model and in 1986, became one of the first women to be a face of Louis Vuitton.
Is it true that there are no dresses produced in England to emulate the flapper style?
Yes, most clothing producers make their own dresses.
For example in Australia, the fashion industry uses fabrics from the Netherlands, but we only produce and sell dress fabrics as well as skirts and dresses.
We do not import our own dress fabric because it is expensive. Instead, we rely on American and European sources.
