I Need your Help - Please VOTE FOR ME!!! [17 Mar 2009|12:40pm]

This is so weird....

I’ve been nominated as Great British Eccentric of the Year 2009 (I think it’s odd, but I accept the nomination….I shall probably lose out to some group or fan club or clique).

So, I really would appreciate it if you could get everyone you know to vote for me.

I’ve never considered myself an eccentric (the mere approaching me to accept a nomination is an act of extreme eccentricity in itself!) but I just wonder who conjured up my name in the first place!

But if you could get them to vote (in the top right-hand corner) for Ray Frensham, that would be great!. Thank you.

Thank you...

weird or what!!???

German Hyperinflation [08 Feb 2008|07:05am]

I came across an interesting article while I was doing a google search--(and if anybody knows of a non-perishable staple food of Germany in the 1920s that was at high demand, please let me know).

Anyway, while it has nothing to do with flappers, cinema, etc., but I found this article on what was going on in Germany in the early 1920s very interesting!

hey, im new here, and this might be a weird question but can anyone direct me to a site for primary source documents on the sciences of the 20s? Or even better acutal hyperlinks/ pictures for this time period? That would be awesome.

I'm new here.

I was a flapper for halloween (everyone had parties on saturday night rather than monday night. don't ask me why.) Everything I wore was vintage. The dress, the shoes, even the beads. Not the head thing though. That was just a belt. And I couldn't really do anything to my hair because it is too long and I didn't have that much time. I REALLY wish I could do fingerwaves though.

Upcoming Peggy Hunt and Jeannette Alexander Vintage Fashion Show [29 Oct 2005|02:34am]

Hi Everybody -- Here's the info about my Mother's and Grandmother's upcoming vintage fashion show. This is the info that's on the Art Deco Society and Los Angeles Conservancy websites, just in case you're interested.

If any of you do decide to come, please come up and say hello. I'll probably be a bit shy and distracted, and won't have a lot of time to visit, but I'd still love to see you. I'm going to be the MC for the event, and we've got over a hundred of their dresses that models be wearing on the runway, while a slideshow of press clippings and photos plays behind them -- at least that's how I hope it'll go. We'll also have a nice tea -- should be wonderful, and Mom's coming too : )

I've been working towards this for fifteen years now, I think. I'm so happy to be able to do something for my Grandmother and my Mom. It was so upsetting how forgotten their contributions to the history of fashion were, but now, through my continuing efforts, people know who they are again, and this feels really good : )

This is a vintage one of a kind photo of Bette Davis that I have. She's wearing one of my Granny's dresses. I have some great pictures like this that we're going to put out on a memorabilia table.

Moderne to Modern: The Fashions of Peggy Hunt and Jeanette Alexander
Sunday, November 6, 2005
Presented by the ADSLA and Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee.
At the El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Boulevard in the fabulous Miracle Mile

Doors open at 1 PM for Tea Service. There is limited seating for the Tea Service, first come, first served.

Table seating for tea is $35 general admission and $30 for members of ADSLA or LAC. Tickets will cost $15 for show only (no tea). We will also sell light refreshments.

The clothes that will be shown are the collection of the daughter and grand-daughter of Los Angeles based women's clothing designers Peggy Hunt and Jeanette Alexander. Peggy Hunt began designing clothes for her daughter in the 1930s and went on to become a successful fashion designer. Movie stars wore her gowns, but she also sold in the exclusive department stores. She is known for creating the illusion neckline. Her daughter, Jeanette Alexander, was active in the 1950s and 1960s and designed daywear so as not to compete with her mother. Special appearance by Jeanette Alexander (subject to availability).
