Description From the turn-of the century S-bend silhouette to the bumsters and bustiers of the 1990s, this concise and comprehensive survey explores all the significant developments in fashion across the 20th century. The authors focus on key movements and innovations in clothing for both men and women and explore these through the work of the most original and influential designers and couturiers. Chapters are organized around crucial shifts in style and major world events, placing revolutionary fashion developments in historical context. International in scope, the book encompasses all the century’s most important designers and fashion centres alongside developments in accessories, hairstyles and make-up. Mass production, advances in man-made fibres, the growth of ready-to-wear and the influence of postwar subcultural styles on contemporary fashion are also discussed. The reference section includes an extensive bibliography.
