Fashion muse for spring 2008: The Flapper

The Flapper look continues to be a strong trend in fashion. Designers looked for inspiration not only in Coco Chanel's constantly promoted style, but also in the mysterious figures of silent flicks or in the looks of angelic Mia Farrow playing Daisy Buchanan (The Great Gatsby-1974).
From the tennis player attire to flamboyant evening dresses the spring runways brought to live the jazz age feeling.
