It was also influenced by Russian and Chinese art. It featured rare and expensive materials, such as ebony and ivory, and exquisite craftsmanship that included landmarks of architecture such as the Chrysler Building in New York City.Women’s fashion flourished during this period with the epicenter being Paris.
