This book, published in the UK, has over 100 illustrations, many full page and most in black and white. The dust jacket says "Julian robinson presents a pictorial cavalcade of the fashions of a decade whose high style has become synonymous with effortless elegance and graceful waistlines. Drawing on the richly varied material provided in the great fashion magazines of the 1930's, he measures the contributions made by Hollywood, the American culture and economy, and the language of advertising to the new notion of fashion, international, desirable, as sign of wealth, the symbol of accomplishment, and sophistication... Julian Robinson not only documents in words and pictures the modes of this period, the new fabrics and the emphasis on silhouette; but also evokes the unique and immediately identifiable style of a singularly glamorous era." Full page photos include work of designers Molyneux, Schiaparelli, Nina Ricci, Patou, Burberry, Balenciaga, Mainboucher, Rochas, Pinguet, Lelong, Lanvin, and lesser known designers.
