Remember knitted bathing suits and utility clothes? Fifties shirt-waisters and the ever-rising mini? Mods, rockers, hippies and the happening boutiques of swinging sixties London? Fashion takes the reader on a journey along the ever-changing road of what we wore, from the turn of the 20th century to the 1980s. Packed with over 400 images, the volume charts the contrasts and rapid evolution of style across the decades. Compiled from one of the UK"s most unique historical archives, Mary Evans Picture Library, Fashion is a celebration of glamour and style, and an insight into how clothes are part of the fabric of our lives.
