With the last season of NPR’s popular series Downton Abbey upon us, fashionable viewers have a renewed fascination with the elegant fashions of the Jazz Age. In celebration of that period, Galleria Dallas will host Decadence: Fashions from the 1920s, a fashion exhibit celebrating the beauty and elegance of the 1920s in a special display from January 22 through February 28, 2016.

 Presented by Galleria Dallas, curated by Ken Weber of Vintage Martini and featuring pieces from the Susan Denn and Robert Schmidt Collection and The Texas Fashion Collection of UNT College of Visual Arts & Design, Decadence will showcase the allure of the 1920s in fashion and accessories. 

The exhibit is timely given the resurgence of 1920s-inspired silhouettes on the runways of designers such as Gucci, Marchesa and Prada. Decadence will feature rare pieces from French, Spanish and Italian couturiers including Madeleine Vionnet, Mariano Fortuny, Maria Monaco Gallenga and Lucien Lelong.

Decadence: Fashions from the 1920s is free to Galleria shoppers and can be visited at the Galleria Dallas/Level One near Banana Republic January 22 – February 28, 2016.  Visit for exhibit hours.
