From the 1920s flapper dresses to 1940s twin-sets, 1970s flares and the avant-garde catwalk creations of the designers of the 1990s, the multitude of fashions produced in the 20th century offers something for every sartorial taste. This acccessible book takes a close look at this increasingly popular area of collecting, covering styles from the very beginning of the century to the present day. For ease of reference, this book is divided into decades and then subdivided into daywear, evening wear, underwear, accessories and menswear, with special sections on unisex clothing included under the 1970s and 1990s. It features information on key designers and trends and is packed with handy tips on how to spot a bargain. Practical advice on where to buy is also included, along with information on how to care for your collection, a glossary of useful terms and suggestions for further reading.

I love this book -- it was the first one I wrote so it is exciting to see it here in a second edition. Most of the clothes featured in the 1920s, '30s and '40s sections are from my own collection. I finished with a new respect for Vivienne Westwood. Had the suit she designed, featured in the 1980s section, been a size larger I would have bought that but restraint, for once, prevailed. Other books on similar themes take a more general, historical perspective, see my titles in the series Twentieth Century Developments in Fashion and Costume.About the Author:
Carol Harris is a freelance writer, editor and lecturer with a love of fashion. She is a keen collector of antique clothing, especially designs of the 1930s and 1940s.
