VINTAGE GYPSY FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY

vintage-gypsy-photographTHESE VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHS SHOW STEREOTYPED IMAGES OF GYPSYS, YET THEY ARE VERY EFFECTIVE IN EVOKING A MYSTERIOUS FEEL OF GYPSY WOMANHOOD. THE FASHION IS LUXURIOUS AND FLOWING. IT SEEMS THAT ALL GYPSYS IN FAIRY TALES MUST WEAR HEADSCARVES JUST LIKE THE WOMEN IN THESE PHOTOGRAPHS. THE GYPSY IN THE TOP PHOTOGRAPH SEEMS TO BE CARRYING A HANDBAG FASHIONED FROM AN ORNATE SCARF. THE WICKER BASKET IS ANOTHER TYPICAL GYPSY STYLE PROP.
