fashion in the 1920s

Sweatshops aren’t the only dark cloud in the history of garment making. Just as consumers are oblivious to injustice on the path their clothes take from sweatshop to store, they are also blissfully unaware of the killings and corruption that have taken place for nearly a century in what used to be the hub of garment making: New York City. THE MOB TAKES MANHATTAN In 2001, the gangster played muse to many a designer. In January, the mob ruled at Yohji Yamamoto’s menswear show in Parismodels flaunted the designer’s fall wares for wiseguy wannabes, like charcoal suits in thick wool, eight-button tweed coats, and caps straight out of The Godfather, Part II. In February, New York designer Mark Montano enticed audience members to his Gangster Girl show with clever invitations written in newsprint font to resemble the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. The collection included such mob-influenced creations as the Hands Up coat, Back Stabber dress, Gangsta pantsuit in fuchsia plaid wool, and the crowd favoritethe Bullet Hole dress, a breezy frock that had actually been shot through at the gun range. Then a month later, Italian designer Gai Mattiolo sent models down the catwalk at his Milan show in mafioso chalk-striped suits, sumptuous fur coats, and black trousers.1920s Fashion: Icons Who Defined Twenties Style | Marie Claire Ltf
