1930's Irene's Suits

Irene's suits could be worn for years and often were.  They represented the pinnacle of women's design and tailoring. Irene's gowns also stayed fashionable for years, Marlene Dietrich took several purchased in the 1930's, to entertain the troops during World War II.

1930's clothing was somber and modest, reflecting the difficult social and economic situation of the decade. Women's fashions moved away from the brash, daring style of the 1920's towards a more romantic, feminine silhouette.
