About the Author:

Maria Costantino was born in Chicago, Illinois and has written such other titles as "The Handbook: Household Hints & Tips," "DIY Encyclopedia," "First Aid Pocket Guide" and many other books on food, drink, art, design and fashion. She teaches Historical, Critical and Theoretical Studies at several universities and colleges in England, and now lives by the sea in Sussex.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-- Baker explains how Nazi invasions and Japanese bombings forced rapid economic and therefore fashion change. Rationing became the order of the day. To save material, skirts narrowed and shortened; the midriff was bared in swim suits; pockets, buttons, and trim were regulated; and attached coathoods were banned. Costantino looks at The 1930s , when 23 million people were out of work; even the rich found it necessary to watch expenditures carefully, and Coco Chanel reduced her prices by 50%. Splashed with full-color photos and illlustrations, plenty of verve, and enticing information, both books connect political and social history with the reasons people chose particular dress modes. The reading lists and other reference aids make them handy for researchers, but they are also delightful to browse through and certain to lead young people to ponder their own sartorial choices. Two books that will be interesting to anyone searching for the whys and wherefores of human identity.

Bringing the Jazz Age to life through the clothes of the flappers and Thoroughly Modern Millies, Fashions of a Decade: The 1920s revisits an important part of social and cultural history. As the fabric of society changed, fashion took on a life of its own - exploding with new colors and trends - alongside the innovative rhythms and styles of jazz music. It was a period of youthful escapism, a reaction to the stern clothes and strict behavior that was expected during the Victorian Age, and this revised, full-color volume captures the essence of that social change.
