It’s really a dress, but it’s the right name.
You have to wear a flapper on the beach.
I’ve always been into the flapper dress. The whole idea of a flapper is to rock the top, not to wear a dress at all.
What is the coolest thing you have seen in flapper dress?
The coolest thing I’ve seen in a flapper dress was one of the ones at the Balmain boutique in London. They had a red flapper dress with a black dress below that had the sleeves that are rolled in at the elbow.
You have a very unique look. Do you ever wonder how it started?
The whole idea for me was: ‘Why does everyone look like a flapper?’ When I started looking at fashion, people were like, ‘Oh, that’s what we do.’
But I always thought, ‘No, maybe I just look like someone who doesn’t want to dress conservatively anymore.’
What is the coolest thing you have seen in the flapper dress?
There was one that was quite a big deal, and it was a woman who showed up wearing a flapper dress. And there were people who were like, ‘That’s so cool,’ or, ‘That really made me want to dress like that.’ It was very interesting.
You’re a big advocate of what’s called ‘curvy girls’ clothing. Why do you think that is still around, and why are people still wearing ‘fantasy’ clothes?
Why is it called a flapper dress?
Because there’s a skirt that goes around the back. It also has a long back and shoulders, but I also thought there was a dress with more of a V-neck.
Why do you think women still gravitate toward ‘fantasy’ clothes?
Well, it feels like this weird dress is always going to be a staple in your wardrobe for the rest of your life. And there’s nothing wrong with that because it doesn’t look like anything else you buy.
How did you start working on the runway for the show?
I had no particular direction really. They were always looking for the funnest
