Tracing the development and style of women’s and men's clothing from the end of the 19th century to the present day in an intriguing selection of fashion photography

Catwalk, studio, and fashion-shoot photographs reflect the real-life social changes and attitudes that have influenced our fashion, from the bustles and heavy tightly-laced corsets of the Victorian era; through the softer, more fluid lines and brighter colors of the Edwardian period; to the conservative ration-driven outfits of the war years; to the broad-shouldered business chic of the 1980s; to the colorful, softer, more feminine clothes of the present day. Men’s clothing, too, has undergone many changes during this period, from the simple, conservative ‘suit for all occasions’ to a far wider, more casual and more colorful look. This visually stunning and facinating book examines the progression of women's and men's fashion through more than 300 photographs. Here, too, are the designers, the models and celebrities who influenced what we wore over the course of more than a century.
