It's prom season, which means glitz, glam, and of course, beautiful formal outfits. We are lucky enough to have a beautiful Paris-made flapper dress in our collection! Generously donated to us by Betty Osincup (@bettyosincup) and her family earlier this year, this dress is a perfect addition to our Brinton Entertaining Company Papers, which focuses on film history.
