This lavish volume invites the reader into the glamorous fashions of the 1920s. To coincide with the release of the film The Great Gatsby, we are pleased to offer Jazz Age Fashion at a new lower price. This stunning volume highlights the best of the collection, scaling the heights of Jazz Age fashion with chapters on sequined dresses, cocktail wear, bridge coats, opera coats, evening jackets, and house coats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning book! 27 Nov 2013

An exceptionally stylish book packed with gorgeous photos of 1920s fashion. Little historical explanation but still very useful for design reference and just for the pleasure of flicking through!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking! 11 May 2013
By BookLuvR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a jazz age fashion aficionado and collector of fashion books I had high hopes and expectations that this volume far exceeded.

The book includes beautiful full length and detail photographs of dresses, jackets, capes, shoes, hats and underwear of the period. The photos show the transparency of transparent garments and the exquisite handwork detail of sequin, embroidery and lace designs.

Text is pared to a useful amount - enough commentary to bring the reader a certain level of emotional intimacy with these stunning garments. There's even a section advising on the proper care, cleaning and storage of clothing made with 1920's materials and technology.

An excellent addition to a fashion library.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Disappointment 19 April 2014
By Tiffany L. Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I love the 20's and the Great Gatsby. I was expecting photographs of men and women from that era. What I ended up with was an oversized book of beautiful clothes from that era hanging on hangers. I've looked through the book once and probably never will again. My advice don't believe the hype, save your money.
