The visual culture of Art Deco is defined not only through architecture, but through graphic design, interior design, fine art, sculpture, film, photography and textiles.
It influenced fashion and jewelry design, emphasising clean shapes and simplified lines to express the dynamism of the Machine Age.
The well dressed Deco woman was a study in style; from her gown and accessories, down to her cigarette case.
Join Claudia Chan Shaw for an exploration of the Art Deco Style in fashion and jewelry - from the textile designs of Sonia Delaunay, to the poster girls of Shanghai and the luxury of Cartier...
Afterwards, we invite all attendees to join us for drinks and nibbles at about 8:45 pm.
Please call David Rozenker–Apted on (02) 9878 2511.
