1920's Jazz Age Lawn Party


While catching up on The Sartorialist I came across these amazing pictures of groups of people dressed to the nines. With each picture is looked as if the subjects had stepped straight out of the roaring 20's. I instantly wondered what, where and why.

After a little google searching I found out that they were attending a real life Gatsby style party. The pictures were taken at the Jazz Age lawn Party on Governors Island in NY. Of course the event was LAST weekend (June 6th & 7th), but seriously I would have loved to have been there. The event featured a "delightful afternoon rendezvous of live music and dance, instructionin period dances, picnicking, and games". It looks as if this is a yearly event, one that I will for sure be on the look out for come June 2010, please do let me know if you hear of any.

For now enjoy the style focused pics from the event, all via The Sartorialist.











*Sigh* I so wish I was there...
