Dress Up 2011...April's Theme: ART DECO

Image From ColorBakery

It is time to announce the theme for April's Dress Up!  Drum Roll......ART DECO!  You won't have to look far to find examples of this style.  Art Deco is everywhere!  Jewelry, architecture, fashion, furniture, fonts, and even hairstyles!  Think old Hollywood Glam...Marlene Dietrich, cigarette holders, The Charleston, and anything in South Beach!

Georges Lapape
Geogre Barbier

You can find additional information regarding the history and essential elements of Art Deco HERE and HERE.  I'll post the Simply Linked Link "thing" on April 1!  Can't wait!

A big THANKS to Rosemary for suggesting ART's going to be a blast!

Great challenge Angela! I have a huge Georges Lepape coffee table book and have been drawing his cartoonish fashion models since my late teens! Just love his style and of course anything art deco! We are really going on an art history tour with this year of dresses... thank you for hosting this! I love how it makes me think and create in totally new ways. Liza
