The mini dress has become synonymous with the 1960s, and while that was the decade ladies dared to bare a leg, the above knee hemline existed long before. Twenties flapper girls certainly knew how to shock, and how to do it with flair.
This Kartika Mini Dress by Nanette Lepore is a modern ode to the flapper style, taking in art deco influence in the shoulder embellishments. The black and gold colour palette fits perfectly, while a loose fit offsets a short dress to create the boyish figure so popular at the time. The dress is shorter than originals might have been, but captures the feel of the fashion well.
