Art Deco Style. Interwar Period Fashion Design exhibition in Riga
Riga

The end of World War I lead to significant changes in the political map of the world. Due to the collapse of big empires: Russia, Austro Hungarian, Ottoman Empire and Germany new states appeared – Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, the Baltic States. This was a factor, which, indirectly, had an impact on the fashion development of the time, because in the field of fashion design there was growing interest in the East European folk motifs. The time was a period of immense social upheaval, particularly for women. It was the beginning of Women's emancipation movement, at last women won a possibility to obtain higher education, vote and get a divorce. This consequently resulted in the rise of their self-assurance wishing to prove that they can stand on equal positions with men professionally and socially.

Corsets were no longer in fashion, as it was already predicted time ago by Paul Poiret (a Parisian fashion icon at the beginning of the 20th century). This lead to the changes: dress outlines moved to a narrow, relaxed, almost semi-fitted silhouette. Although many women continued the habit of wearing corsets, the tubular clothing silhouettes no longer required it. This kind of silhouette was in fashion all through the 1920s.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
