paris wedding fashion trend 2010: the elegant 1930s

For 2010, Paris wedding dress designers are looking back to the feminine, sleek and elegant 1930s.  Les Annees Folles, “the Crazy Years” in Paris following World War I, had a groundbreaking impact on women’s fashion. Hemlines were raised, hair was bobbed (”à l’allure garçonnière“), and women embraced an all-round boyish sportiness that had never been experienced before. By the 1930’s, though, soft femininity had returned to Parisian fashion.  Curves were emphasized with bias cuts and dropped cowl necklines, and slender, backless silk gowns swept the ground. Today’s Parisian wedding dress designers are paying homage to both of these eras in silhouette, texture and detailing, while remaining decidedly moderne at the same time:
