Skills Ontario: International Day of the Girl 2020- Dresses 1920 Style

Collage of dress making

Coco Chanel revolutionized the fashion industry in the 1920’s by designing and marketing casual outfits that were both elegant and comfortable to wear, a sharp contrast to bulky corsets and petticoats that were popular prior. Her designs helped give the 1920’s their iconic and distinct style and her fashion house is still producing stylish and unique clothes to this day.

Skills Ontario challenged students to follow in the footsteps of Coco and design and create a dress in the 1920’s style! Students were asked to use specific items such as “fabric” and only glue, staples, hole punch & yarn/string to “sew”.
