One of my favourite windows – 1920s flappers

This one is from a while ago, but I can’t resist sharing it with you. Both gowns are French silk couture, purhased from an exclusive Collins street boutique in the late 1920s and from the wardrobe of a local lady. Both have now found new and appreciative homes – the gorgeous floral on the left is now owned by a lovely blonde lady, the owner of Melbourne’s best lingerie boutique.

I quite like the way the lighting is rather fey, with lots of street reflection.

  1. Just had to let you know how fab your window is. I am in the process of making a 1/2th scale 1920’s dress shop to add to my collection of ‘dolls house’ shops and your window display has been invaluable for ideas as it is the only one i can find on Google or my local library, so thank you for a beautiful image. I have also used your silk stocking picture, scaled down, to make little packets of stockings. Regards Amanda.

  2. Thanks Amanda: glad you like it! I love the idea of your little stocking packets too – it must be an amazing dolls house shop.
