The Inspiration of my garment comes from the garments seen in the 1974 version of the film The Great Gatsby. The big summer hat that Daisy wears when she meets Gatsby and flapper dresses that are seen at Gatsby’s party both inspired the style of my garment. Also, in order to create a design that is not a replica of the flapper style dress, I decided to make my garment more modern. The dress is made for a modern day flapper; a young rebellious women in her mid twenties who is trendy and very social. The garment is made of layered chiffon. The layering affect is seen in the arms and on the shoulder, where there is only one layer of the chiffon instead of two; this is also a element inspired by Daisy’s hat. The silhouette of the dress is draped in a vertical line that makes the body appear slender, which is a characteristic from the flapper dresses worn by the women seen at Gatsby’s party. Details, such as the length, neckline, make the garment more appealing for a young and sociable women of today.
