"The dress was vintage 1920s"

In the 1920s, also known as the Roaring Twenties, the United States (as well as European cultural capitals London and Paris) experienced a social, artistic and cultural boom in its return to economic 'normalcy' following World War I and before the onset of the Great Depression in 1929. In terms of fashion, the women's right movement meant the mid-1920s to the early 1930s was the period when women were first liberated from tight corsets and began to wear more freely-flowing skirts and trousers. Bridal wear from the period is characterised by the near shapelessness of the simple tube-like dresses in often pastel colours as well as white. At the beginning of the decade, dresses were ankle or mid-calf length, rising to knee-length between 1926 and 1928 (a period dominated by the flapper dress)before falling again.
