Overview

New in our successful collection of books showcasing historical, every day fashions comes an assortment of photographs documenting trends in the mid-1920s. During post-World War I's economic revival, women emerged from an era of corsets, long gowns, and formality to express their independence. Sheath dresses were designed to mimic mannish styles, while hemlines and haircuts were shortened. Even men's suits changed, to include exaggerated shoulders and an emphasis on narrow hips. Children often were dressed to honor recent war heroes. More than 380 beautiful images feature hundreds of clothing styles from the catalogs of Bellas Hess & Company, and The Charles William Stores, Inc. Costume designers seeking to recreate an era, collectors looking for vintage clothing, and fashion designers looking for inspiration for today's looks, will all find something new here.

    Pretty Good for Research

    i think this book is pretty good for research if you're doing it about flappers. It shows their fashions. In the begginning it gives a small history about the flapper. That info is about as much useful as a 10 page article. It summerizes everything you need. There are also descriptions of the attires in the book. So... get it if youre doing a research paper... on Flappers Fashions
