Description

100 Years of Fashion documents in pictures the most exciting and diverse period in fashion: from 1900 to today, covering high society, uniforms, sportswear, streetwear and couture. It will appeal to everyone with an interest in fashion as well as students.

The last hundred or so years bore witness to the transformation of women's fashion. The restrictive corsetry of the early twentieth century gave way to looser styles such as those made fashionable by French fashion designer Paul Poiret. As women's lives changed dramatically under the shadow of two World Wars, so the style of female dress was altered beyond recognition. From home dressmaking to couture, from rationing to 'The New Look', from the birth of the teenager to mass manufacture, from high society to celebrity culture.

Over 400 photographs and illustrations, many published for the first time, tell the stylish story of a fashion revolution. This is the third in Cally Blackman's series of fashion titles, previously publishing 100 Years of Fashion Illustration and 100 Years of Menswear with Laurence King Publishing.
