Today I spent the day in period clothing out on Governor’s Island for the 10th Jazz Age Lawn Party. When I started getting a bit too crispy in the sun I decided to walk around and snap some pictures of the other attendees. I’ll have a full gallery up on Monday, but for now here’s a taste. Check out our Instagram (@racialicious) for others! - KJ
NYC wedding and editorial photographer Sophie Kawalek took the Petzval 58 back in time this past weekend when she visited the iconic Jazz Age Lawn Party. Glimpse into the era of The Charleston, tintypes, swinging dancers, elegant costumes, and classic cocktails in her artful portraits.
Alas, not all of us can attend the Jazz Age Lawn Party, so why don’t we doll ourselves up and have a Jazz Age Tumblr Party?
Join me on August 18th and 19th for the First Annual Jazz Age Tumblr Party.
Post a fabulous photo of yourself in a straw boater hat! Post some swoon-worthy dresses from the Roaring Twenties! Make a post about the Harlem Renaissance! Post your favorite Art Deco architecture, music from the 1920s, images from silent films, and photographs of the Bright Young People!
Cheers to another thoroughly enjoyable Jazz Age Lawn Party! Thanks to the St. Germain booth for the lovely printed event takeaways - I now know slightly more than I did [which was admittedly very little] about Elderflower Liquor.
