Mood board for Flappers

This again is a subculture that I thought of early on as I have seen lovely imagery that represents this subculture, I feel despite this there is not an awful lot of imagery that reflects this subculture from its real form, there is a perception of it that I firstly believed represented the subculture was although after doing some research as you can see in some of these images this subculture was more ordinary and not as glamorous as some of the imagery so I feel if I created for this I would not be creating a true reflection of the subculture and with my audience being possibly people that are either very interested of had some sort of experience with it I feel the representation I create for this needs to be very real and clear.

“Flappers were a “new breed” of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. Flappers had their origins in the liberal period of the Roaring Twenties, the social, political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of World War I, as well as the export of American jazz culture to Europe.”
