Fashion Since 1900

With more than 1100 full-colour illustrations, this is the most comprehensive and detailed history and source book of 20th-Century fashion ever published.  From the styles of  the early 1900s to those of today, John Peacock charts the development of women's fashion in all its aspects: couture wear, day wear, underwear, leisure wear, evening wear, bridal wear and accessories.  Photography could never capture so faithfully the dazzling variety of these designs: indeed, many which pre-date the advent of colour photography have never before been shown in their original colours. John Peacock's wide-ranging research, using not only paintings and photographs but also the garments themselves, has allowed him to reproduce in true and meticulous detail their lines, shapes, weaves, patterns and colours.  Arranged decade by decade, the pictures are accompanied by complete descriptions of each garment and accessory, including the fabric, cut and pattern.  Every detail - collars, cuffs, pockets, buttons and trimmings is noted.  The extensive reference section includes a time-chart summarising the development of fashion and dress-shapes, biographies of individual couturiers and designers and a concise bibliography.
