New Wedding Gallery Update 19th June 2013

These new finds are from the Fashion Journal Petit Echo de la Mode, and are mostly from the front cover pages.  During the 1920’s many gowns were designed to have a shorter length, thereby saving on expensive materials.  This did not mean a sacrifice to a feeling of grand luxury, as these examples show.   Perhaps a new trend for now, as some remarkable shoes are available to wear and are covered up by long gowns.
