Over 350 striking black-and-white illustrations of early 20th-century fashions — from elegant, high-necked hobble-skirted gowns of 1910 to the loose-fitting, barrel-shaped dresses of 1919. Includes figures garbed in rich furs, sumptuous fabrics, swooping drapes, clutched cloaks, "harem" pants, lounging pajamas, leg-revealing beach wear, and much more. A delight for nostalgia fans. Invaluable to fashion historians, designers, and collectors.
