Racetrack Robes – 1920’s

Racetrack Robes of France – 1920’s

My “Vintage Racetrack Robes” collection has evolved in France over a long time and I was recently spurred on by an expert in the field of racing events and fashions  Briana Mott, from Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A. with her discussion on the subject of Fashion & Horse Racing. This was the authentic look for Ladies of France in the 1920’s.  The images are from the journal Petit Echo de la Mode.

Surprisingly, I have been sitting on some pretty stunning garment views of exactly the fashions in France during this time.   Hats, well you all have hundreds of these to play with,  but these are a select few hat images of the past.   A stylish  NEW TREND?
