These ads below were taken from AdAccess.com. These ads feature pictures of brides at the time in ads for beauty products, hygiene, and soap.

AdAdAdAdAs you can see in these advertisements, all of the brides have a very similar look. One of the most evident similarities is the use of lace and mesh in the veil. The veil is very indicative of the art deco era due to the close fit to the brides head. Cloche hats were very popular at the time, so it make sense that the veils worn would be similar to these fashions.


The ads below were put out on the late twenties and were used to advertise selling radios. These radios are reminiscent of the styles of the art deco era. You can see similarities in buildings and in lines that are used in the design of the radios as well. The symmetry and the arches are all influences taken from art deco.

I’ve been on the hunt through every antique store in sight. I’ve dug through photos, I’ve bought old pictures, jewels, patterns, and magazines. These are just a few pictures of some of the awesome magazines and photos I’ve been able to get my hands on.

The photo below is from a savings bond ad in the Saturday morning post in the mid 1930’s. I love the flowing dress on this lady liberty. The style is evocative of  Grecian times, but it has the modern elements of the art deco style as well.

These photos for car advertisements are from this website for Chrysler. You can see in the background of these advertisements, some art deco design influences. In the back of one of the ads, you can even see some of the arches of the roman aqueducts. These arches and fluidity in design can be seen in the architecture and the structure of the clothing of the twenties and thirties in this era. These Chrysler ads were from 1928,1929, and 1930.
