During the 1920s, one of the most popular dances, the Charleston, lent its name to a dress completely covered in fringe, that would move and shake along with the body’s movement, revealing the legs. These embroidered or shawled dress invaded all of high society throughout America and Europe. blog/2010/12/december-28th#ad-image54900
