In this title social history is reflected in the outfits of the time, from the wartime austerity of the 1940s to the new couture of the 1950s. It is a fascinating journey through fashion and style, both on the London catwalks and on the streets of ordinary towns This is a visual record of the British people's habits of dress from the Victorians to Britpop, containing around 300 photographs from the Press Association's photograph archives, that spans the whole of the 20th Century. Most of these images have lain unseen since they were used as news pictures when first taken. Each image has been scanned especially for this book, many from glass plates, ensuring the best possible quality of reproduction. This book takes us on a fascinating journey through a hundred years of fashion and style, both on the London catwalks and on the streets of ordinary towns. So much social history can be seen reflected in the clothes of ordinary people: Victorian attitudes were inseparable from the clothes of the time, the relaxed atmosphere and pleasure-seeking of the 1920s can be seen clearly in its pyjama-clad girls, wartime austerity is acutely visible in ration-driven outfits followed by the new couture of the 1950s and then from the '60s to the end of the '90s we see a kaleidoscopic rush through a rapidly changing society. It is a must for fashion watchers everywhere.
