About this title


The post-war years saw an upheaval in social, personal and professional life that resulted in a large variety of fashions in a comparatively short period. From the austerity of the utility years to the recent seventies revival, this book aims to capture the changes in mood and style of each era, with an assessment of new phenomena such as peer group pressure. The book shows a cross-section of clothing including street fashion and formal wear, underwear, sportswear and nightclothes.

From Library Journal:

Designer Clancy brings impeccable qualifications to this new guide to costume design. Although she is particularly well known for her early-20th-century period costumes, here she concentrates her remarkable talents on costumes designed over the past 50 years. Clancy weaves three trends that have influenced clothing styles?the move from neutral to bright colors, the increasing use of Lycra, and the emerging dominance of "street clothes" over couture?with three distinct fashion strands?high fashion, clothes for the masses, and "style tribes." Representative costumes are discussed and illustrated in the context of five-year segments beginning with 1945. Each segment has its own introduction and traces a wide range of topics (e.g., hair, fashion details, men's outer wear, etc.). These informative discussions provide as much social history as they do fashion history. Highly recommended for all libraries collecting books on fashion, design, and decorative arts.?P.
