Book Description

25 May 2000
From the 1920s flapper dresses to 1940s twin-sets, 1970s flares and the avant-garde catwalk creations of the designers of the 1990s, the multitude of fashions produced in the 20th century offers something for every sartorial taste. This acccessible book takes a close look at this increasingly popular area of collecting, covering styles from the very beginning of the century to the present day. For ease of reference, this book is divided into decades and then subdivided into daywear, evening wear, underwear, accessories and menswear, with special sections on unisex clothing included under the 1970s and 1990s. It features information on key designers and trends and is packed with handy tips on how to spot a bargain. Practical advice on where to buy is also included, along with information on how to care for your collection, a glossary of useful terms and suggestions for further reading.

I purchased this book for my daughter who works in the vintage clothing business. While she is very pleased with the book, I was somewhat disappointed. It has a very strong smell of mildew (which I think is very unpleasan)t when the pages are being turned. I am hoping this will wear off as the book gets more airing out, Otherwise the b ook was in good shape.

Whether you're a designer or just one of those people like myself that enjoy a good vintage book on clothing and accessories. You'll love this book. If anything to refresh the mind of a time when we grew up and what we wore. They say if you wait long enough, our generations clothing come back in style. It is SO true!
