Presenting a visual journey through the fashion of the decades, Vintage Fashion enables the reader to identify key designers, shapes, textiles, stitching, and other details and characteristics that define the most influential pieces of the twentieth century. Each chapter begins with a historical introduction to the era, offering an overview of the designers of the time and their key influences. The chapter then develops along themes - such as textile, print, stitching, shape and cut, fabric technology and manufacture as well as colour - according to the most groundbreaking developments of the time and noting the special details and characteristics that mark a piece as authentic. Each decade ends with a 'key looks' spread showing an at-a-glance view of the important shapes, colours and looks that defined the era. The book concludes with a shopping guide, which offers pointers on sourcing and caring for original vintage pieces, along with a glossary of fashion terms and the century's most collectable designers.
