The 1920's has been described as the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. The '20s and the '30s saw flappers, shift dresses, hats for men (fedoras, bowler hats and newsboy caps), and accessories such as elbow length gloves. The art world saw rise of Surrealism and Art Deco.
When Creative Director Ana Cunningham stumbled upon a stack of vintage Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair magazines at a garage sale, she bought them immediately. The publication dates range from 1924 - 1940 and their pages are full of stunning artworks, advertisements and fashion.
And it was exactly those magnificent trends from the Roaring Twenties and the 1930s that sparked the creation of Creative Matters' 25th Anniversary Collection. The latest line of luxurious fair trade rug designs captures the essence of the era with the "silver and golden hues yet intricate patterning" that is reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby"
