nsist that a fashionista name his/ her sartorial inspiration from the Twenties, and the answer will most likely be a unanimous The Great Gatsby. My introduction to the nouveau riche happened as a result of high school reading, but in less than a year, I found myself reading Fitzgerald’s other works that included The Beautiful and Damned, and Tender Is The Night. I knew there would come a time when I pay homage to the jazz age as told by Fitzgerald via a blog blurb, but I didn’t want to do a modern, frivolous spin on The Great Gatsby alone. (I say frivolous because it is hard to illustrate Gatsby without highlighting its fragility and flaws) Sure, the iconic movie put Twenties fashion back on the map, but F. Scott Fitzgerald opened me up to a world of romance like I had never seen before, so I wanted my outfit to go beyond what meets the eye.
