It's not clear how or when the term Flapper first wound its way into the American vernacular. The expression probably originated in pre war England. According to a 1920's fashion writer, "flapper" initially described the sort of teenage girl whose gawky frame and posture were "supposed to need a certain type of clothing-long, straight lines to cover her awkwardness-and the stores advertised these gowns as "flapper-dresses."

About Me

Braintree, Essex, United Kingdom
I am a mature student,in my final year studying for a BA Hons in Fashion and Textiles. I have two children who give me lots of encouragement. They are both studying, one is currently at home and other living in London, but with whom I speak daily. I have a love of anything from the 1920's and have recently read a book that had the title "Flapper." The author was Joshua Zeitz and I found it to be an entertaining read. This is where I got the idea for the title for my Blog, Girlish Delights in Barrooms.

Fashion show-Vendome Mayfair.

I have been asked by Fashion Babylon.com to be part of their catwalk fashion show being held this Friday 1st October, at a club called Vendome in Mayfair, London just opposite the Ritz hotel. I'm very excited and just a bit nervous having never done one before. I have been asked if I would auction off some of my pieces shown on the catwalk. This will be an excellent opportunity for me to see if my work is commercial enough and gage people's reaction to my work. If anyone's interested in comming to see the show in can get tickets from www.fashionbabylon.com
