Old Hollywood feels new again for Spring 2013, a season of Art Deco design seen in a range of glamorous dresses

Art Deco design was characterized by its streamlined approach to lavish ornamental style, which largely came about in reaction to the hardships experienced during World War I. The motto for the era became "Anything Goes!"—a mantra expressed by everything from beaded flapper frocks to slinky evening dresses, as seen in this nightclub photo of prominent Philadelphian Persifor Frazer and friends.
