Fast-paced jazz became a way of modern life, and women's confident attitudes can even still be seen today in the still-silent movies. For a detailed description of the fashion in the roaring '20s, click here

Synthetic materials were introduced for manufacturing fabrics while rayon, wool, silk and cotton were commonly used materials to make women's clothes. In the late 1930s nylon was introduced as a replacement for silk.
