Flapper Happy

Fans of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (ourselves included) know that the show's 1920s-style wardrobe rivals in engrossing spectacle the intricate, gangster-heavy, Prohibition-set plot. Instead of focusing on Nucky Thompson's dilemmas or Gillian Darmody's endless mine of creepiness, a closer look at what they wear and why likely would prove just as exciting as a shootout or covert affair.

Serendipitously, Boardwalk's costume designer John Dunn will discuss the decade's duds and how he incorporates them into characters' closets during the talk "Designing the ‘20s."Accompanying Dunn will be Doris Raymond, who owns L.A. vintage boutique The Way We Wore and lent pieces to Phoenix Art Museum for its current fashion exhibition, "Modern Spirit."
