Dandizette



Dandizette is a mini motion picture series created by Ludget Delcy of Dapperlou.com and I. We both share a love for mens fashion and thought it would be a cool idea to show how a woman can dress in mens clothing and put a feminine twist on it. Wearing mens clothing is totally my aesthetic being a bit of a tomboy and all. Shooting this on-going project is fun and allows us to be as creative as we want. The possibilities are endless. Below I have attached some background history on the term Dandizette. Stay tuned for the sequels. Enjoy!

Dandizette was a term applied to feminine devotees to dress and their absurdities were fully equal to those of the dandy. In 1819, the novel Charms of Dandyism was published "by Olivia Moreland, chief of the female dandies"; although probably written by Thomas Ashe, "Olivia Moreland" may have existed, as Ashe did write several novels about living persons. Throughout the novel, dandyism is associated with "living in style". Later, as the word dandy evolved to denote refinement, it became applied solely to men, however we are determined to bring back the term dandizette.
