Trend Report: Roaring Twenties


Our newest collection is inspired by two of my favorite era’s: The roaring twenties and the bustle era!

As a designer and stylist, I absolutely love dressing up to emulate a flapper girl. I enjoy studying the trends on young ladies dolled up for a night out in Hollywood as well as shadowing trends across Paris and Milan fashion week.

We’ve incorporated these trends in our exclusive dance costumes section available online only!

With Halloween costume parties approaching, the 1920s costumes are a must have for girls looking to dress to impress.

Can you imagine when women dressed in such elaborate gowns and wardrobe?
The sophisticated silhouette truly influences my design inspiration in this collection.

If you could go back in time, which time period would you prefer?

Model of the Month: Brooke

Get to know Stars Dancewear’s Newest Model, Brooke,
featured as our October Model of the Month!

1. How long have you been a dancer or model? I have been dancing for 11 years, and still love it!

2.  Who inspires you? My inspiration would have to be Lauren Froderman from SYTYCD! When I get older, I want to dance just like her. Her style is girly and flawless, and she also has amazing flexibility. She adapts easily between styles, and picks up choreography really fast.

3. What’s your favorite thing about Stars Dancewear?I love Stars Dancewear because their clothes are so colorful and fun!! The glitter and furs are so cute and fierce! I was super excited to wear the new 2012 collection. I think it’s so cool that there are professional designers who know what’s hip now. Some of my absolute favorites are the “Haute Look”, and “Square Sequin Hip Hop”.

4. What’s your favorite style of dance? My favorite style of dance would have to be jazz. Its one of the great styles where you can show your sassy and fierce sides. I love when there is a fast beat and girly choreography.  It’s so fun to preform it on stage with facials.

5.  What advice would you give someone becoming a dancer? My advice to all you dancers it to take every single opportunity you get, and don’t ever get discouraged.  Don’t let it get to you if you don’t get picked, called back, etc. Just keep working hard and pushing yourself, and it really will pay off in the end.

Red Carpet Trends at the 2011 Emmys

The 2011 Emmy’s red carpet style exemplified a consistent selection of colors and looks.
The most popular colors of the night were red, shades of blue, and finally basic black and white. Many celebrities were seen wearing sequin embellished couture dresses, as well as the favored chiffon and silk fabrics.

We love Evan Rachel Wood’s look here.
She truly appears sharp and sophisticated yet feminine in shape.

  3. What’s your favorite thing about Stars Dancewear? COLOR, COLOR, COLOR!!! The prints, the bolds, the solids, the pastels and of course the GLITTER!!! Stars Dancewear helps me convey the feeling of my dance with color. Also the fabric lends itself to movement and feels great on me (never itchy or harsh).

  4. What’s your favorite style of dance? I’m a ballerina but I love all styles because with each different style of dance I can take on a different character-The Graceful Swan, the Sassy Jazz dancer with attitude & personality, the funky hip hopper with swag, the lyrical storyteller. And of course each character needs the perfect wardrobe-thats where Stars Dancewear comes in, they complete the package.

  5. What advice would you give someone becoming a dancer? Be prepared to work hard to become your personal best. If you really love to dance then go out and represent your art form well, respect it and nurture it. Also take lots and lots and lots of BALLET!!!!! And at the end of the day, do it because you love it and you love the way you feel when you’re doing it. As my coach Sam always says, “dance with your heart”.
