With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we thought we’d give you some #OOTD inspiration for your family gatherings featuring one of our favorite icons from the Art Deco era, Fay Wray, and some choice pieces from our store!
Introducing this week’s Deco Haus Queen of the week – the iconic Josephine Baker!
From jaw-dropping ensembles to an endless list of talents, the enchanting Josephine Baker never disappointed under the theatre lights of Carnegie Hall or at the Follies-Bergère in Paris. The 1920’s Missouri born starlet thrived not only in the United States, but claimed her fame at the peak of her career in Europe (where she earned more than any other European performer at that time!). Known for her bold moves in fashion, she paved the way for many deco queens. She even had a pet cheetah named Chiquita, who wore a diamond collar whilst Josephine walked her around town! Josephine wore many exotic, revealing outfits for all to see whilst performing her revolutionary dance routines. The iconic superstar even made humor of her approaches in fashion saying “I wasn’t really naked. I simply didn’t have any clothes on.”
One of our first big breaks as a design house was getting chosen to be a part of the film “The Artist”. When we first brought our product line to costume designer Mark Bridges, it was a small foreign art film. However, as filming progressed, we realized that the film was going to be something very big. “The Artist” went on to win Best Costume Design and Best Motion Picture at the Academy Awards in 2012.
The “Screen Dance” is one of our favorite moments. It features our “Original Artist Gown” and the lovely Bérénice Bejo.
