This is an illustrated book offering a journey through the wardrobes of the twentieth-century's best dressed women. Fashion is approached season by season describing with detail the evolution of style, illustrating how fashion can act as a barometer of social change. Why did Edwardian women change six times a day? Why did flappers mimic adolescent boys? How did The Great Depression affect hemlines? Why did women retreat back into corsets after the war? Were London's punks using dress as a language of rebellion? The author contends that answers to these questions contribute to historians understanding of a period.
