The visual presence of this dress is quite stunning. The combination of the lime green georgette and metallic embroidery is simply eye-catching. The 1920s created a new sense of style, introducing a new tubular silhouette and a shorter skirt. This new look promoted a more modern, independent woman. This dress is a wonderful representation of that new freedom, as seen through the detailed design.
