I've been a fan of Art Deco since I was a student at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. When choosing an era for a quarter long study project, I focused on the geometric period, researching it's principles in all aspects of design from architecture to fashion. Today's board pulls from the skyscraper stepped pattern which was born out of the Art Deco era. Add some sun rays and beading, and your look is complete! p.s. I LOVE these bridal gowns.
