It’s a summer evening in the Roaring Twenties as this chic lady enters the room. All eyes turn her way as she dazzles the crowd in the latest fashion. In a sweeping shawl and stylish chemise made of elegant silk and with hand embroidered embellishments and sparkling beads, she glides onto the dance floor.
