WOMEN'S COSTUMES<br>ACCESSORIES<br>1920's to 1940'sThe 1920s is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era.

Immortalized in movies and magazine covers, young women's fashion of the 1920s was both a trend and social statement, a breaking-off from the rigid Victorian way of life.

These young, rebellious, middle-class women, labeled 'flappers' by older generations, did away with the corset and donned slinky knee-length dresses, which exposed their legs and arms.
