DECO QUEEN portrays a woman drenched in the ultimate extravagance and splendor of the Deco era. Her costume, resplendent with gold and jewels, represents an over-the-top Deco style. The upturned collar was a big trend at the time. Her bodice appliqués and all-over patterns are all rendered in Deco’s geometric shapes. The gold leaf and embellishments epitomize Shanghai’s Golden Era. Her hair style was influenced by the very well-known American entertainer who performed in France in the 30’s, Josephine Baker.
