Art Deco Decadence- The Gatsby Influence

GATSBY! Influential in many industries, the most recent re-imagining of the book and films by Baz Luhrmann has catapulted art deco trends into the masses.  Evident in the jewelry industry, apparel and interior design, the movement is flourishing as it did in the roaring 1920's.

Party scenes are becoming more sophisticated, partially due to Pinterest suggestions and decor, pallets are becoming more refined and venues are catering to the climb towards affordable opulence. Inspired by the purchase of one ASOS Backless Midi Sequin Dress, the photo shoot was destined to occur in order to voice a modern day take on 'Gatsby' fashion.  

The serene setting for this shoot was at a throwback 'speakeasy' type of establishment in Culver City, Oldfield's Liquor Room.  Famous for their knowledgeable bar keeps and creative and classic spirits menu, Oldfield's is a gem and certainly one of a kind.  Attracting the crowd it's decor was made to seek, you will find patrons dressed in modern or vintage wear sipping carefully curated cocktails such as 'Old Fashions' and smoking pipes on the patio.


The coup de grĂ¢ce for the shoot was the addition of the period appropriate hats by Bijou Van Ness.  Designer, Rehn Dudukgian contributed some of her Gatsby perfect pieces to help stage the scene, adding the appropriate mixture of Hollywood decadence and glamour. Each Bijou Van Ness is a one of a kind, hand crafted specimen made with the finest materials.
