The Deco Diana Story

The Deco Diana story begins with her travels to Egypt to explore the new wonders emerging from the Tutenkhamun tomb excavation in 1922. An excavation that would change the Jazz Age for good.

She then travels to Paris to the great 1925 L'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. The exhibition that gave its name to Art Deco as we know it.

Her next stop is The Savoy London in 1927 where she enjoys her party life with celebrities like Coco Chanel and other fellow flappers of the era.

How can her travels during the 'Jazz Age' not involve the dazzling nightlife of La Folies Bergère in 1929? Here Diana watched the wonderful Josephine Baker and many others performing risqué dances. This wonderful treasured memory of the theatre includes the famous plaque over the entrance by the architect, designer and painter Pico, of the Ballet Russes Dancer Lila Nicolska.

Her many friends and celebrities from Hollywood relax and chill at the Miami Beach resorts in 1932 and the parties continue...
