Vintage inspiration: Art deco-style shoes
Downton Abbey has sparked a phenomenon. This series, set in the early 1900s, has brought us into the era of cloche hats, pearl strands and feathered flappers. This spring, the Roaring '20s will come to the big screen in The Great Gatsby movie.
Twenties and thirties fashion has been popping up all over the place — finger waves, bold jewelry and even fancy footwear. These modern shoe designs clearly take their cue from the era of Art Deco.
