Iconic Women in Fashion

Posted by Deco Haus Studio on



From the glamorous flapper girls to classic, curvy pin-ups, vintage fashion was all about liberation, trying new things, and making your mark in the process. After the First World War, women’s style reflected the first feelings of freedom after a long period of oppression. Corsets were removed, skirts were shortened, and thanks to one of the ladies on this list – Coco Chanel – pants for women were introduced for the very first time. Art deco motifs, sultry velvet, satin fabrics, and pearl embellishments have all had their place in time as women like Josephine Baker, Clara Bow, and several others on our list of iconic women in fashion made their mark on the ever-evolving fashion industry. We’ve swooned over and lusted after the women on this list, and because of this, they’ve been named as some of our most notable women from past to present.
