“Now I am old-fashioned. A woman, I consider, should be womanly. I have no patience with the modern neurotic girl who jazzes from morning to night, smokes like a chimney, and uses language which would make a billingsgate fishwoman blush!”

- Agatha Christie, Murder on the Links -


It is the 1920s, an era of great social change. Referred to as the Roaring Twenties, it is a decade of economic prosperity. Women too, are redefining their roles, being a Flapper was much more than a style statement; it was an expression of a revolutionary shift in ideas and values.


This Halloween, be daring, independent, exotic, be a Flapper!
