Whilst studying fashion design in 2010, I became highly fascinated with the influence of film upon the design process; as I discovered that designers were required to consider the themes and fashion present in the prominent cinematic releases of the season of the collections intended release. With the initial release date for Baz Luhrman’s highly-anticipated ‘The Great Gatsby’ planned for Boxing Day 2012, the emergence of the #1920s #dropwaist trend in the latter half of last year can be easily explained. Now with the film finally about to be released across the world in the coming weeks, the trend is bigger than ever. The #drop-waist trend is perhaps my favourite that has emerged over the past year; bringing me such charmers as my ASOS red #dress, my #Dahlia 'Ditsy' dress and now this #ASOS #floral number. As skater dresses have an unflattering effect on me and shift dresses have a tendency to look like a paper bag on anyone, I find drop-waist dresses to be the perfect synthesis of the advantageous qualities of both styles. More examples of why I adore the products resultant from this trend are here, here, here and here. All in all, even if Luhrman’s take on ‘The Great Gatsby’ fails to meet the high expectations I have set for it, atleast I have it to thank for the re-ignition (and prolongation) of the drop-waist trend (and a reason to dance the Charleston everywhere ;) ).
