Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Fashion fanatics with a passion for the past will find a smorgasbord of wearable oldies in this new study by an expert in twentieth century fashion. Focusing on the great styles that emerged from the diverse eras between 1925 and 1965, the text places the clothing in its cultural habitat while more than 350 beautiful color photographs demonstrate the quality fabrics, dynamic designs, and careful workmanship that made the clothing last, both in condition and popularity. Chapters cover couture designers whose vintage clothes can be found on the market today, with chronologically arranged coats, suits, dresses, lingerie, handbags, shoes, and hats. The hats chapter has a unique and especially useful pictorial dating guide. Vintage Style was written for museum curators and preservationists, students and fashion designers, dealers, collectors, costumers, and reenactors-everyone who lives for fashion!
