Book Summary

The Roaring Twenties was a time of emancipation for women and clothing fashions developed with women's changing roles in society. For the first time, the corset was discarded, women's legs were shown, bare arms were exposed and the hair was cut into an easy-to-manage bob. 1920s Style documents this amazing turning point in fashion with historical information on the designers and developments that shaped the decade's design style.

An invaluable reference as well as a visual cornucopia of times past, the book explores the designers and couture houses, technical achievements in textiles and cultural influences. Whether you are a vintage clothing fan, a fashion student or just interested in retro styles, this guide will tell you everything you need to know about fashion in the 1920s.
