Art Deco

Miami is known for a rich history in Art Deco. 
This style lives on today in classic parts of Miami Such as Miami Beach.

Art Deco; noun-

a style of decorative art developed originally in 
the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms, sharply defined outlines, often bold colors, and the use of synthetic materials, as plastics.



My school had a fashion design competition where students made and designed a garment inspired by the classic looks of art deco. 
They presented their work during Art Deco weekends second annual fashion show. 
I was asked to model for the show on Ocean Drive and had so much fun! I wore a fellow students work. She is very talented.

I agree! You are drop dead gorgeous! And what an interesting project. I am a self taught illustrator and designer (studie econ at university), and always find it fascinating to see projects from fashion schools.
