From the era that gave the world an energy crisis, runaway inflation, punk rock, and -Saturday Night Fever- comes this vibrant collection of styles from the 1970s. A lively American family of paper dolls models the decade's distinctive fashions in a nostalgic tribune to a time when everyone wanted to have a Nice Day.
Seven dolls -- a mother and father, their four children, and son-in-law -- are accompanied by wardrobes appropriate for work, school, jogging, skiing, skateboarding, dancing, and a wedding. Garments include a string bikini, colorful T-shirts, a polyester business suit with wide lapels and flared cuffs, hot pants, knee-high patent leather books, bell-bottoms, pantsuits, a disco dress with spaghetti straps, a Chanel-style suit, tuxedos, a floor-length wedding gown with a fitted bodice, and much more.
Sure to delight collectors and paper doll enthusiasts of all ages, this fashion retrospective will also appeal to anyone with fond memories of the 1970s.
