This week on Fashion History with American Duchess we speak with the amazing Zoë Beery, a writer for Racked, about her article on how flappers didn’t wear fringed dresses (at least not the ones that we all think of today as “flapper” dresses — you know, the ones you find in the Halloween costume pop up shops…)

While we started down the path of the origin of this 1920s fringed flapper dress myth, as with so many of our interviews, the three of us found ourselves discussing the evolution of gender, sexuality, and fashion and the quirky juxtaposition of the 1920s vs. the 1950s. It was quite the fun discussion, which lead to a few nice moments of deep thought and contemplation during and after our chat with Zoë.
We really enjoyed this thought provoking episode and hope you do, too! If you have any thoughts on what we talk about this episode, feel free to leave a comment below.
