Riassunto: Fashion in this century has ceased to be the domain of the wealthy. This book looks behind the scenes for a deeper understanding of the social, economic and technical changes which have caused this revolution in our attitude to dress. The author tells the story of fashion shocks: two world wars, the impact of new fibres and manufacturing techniques, the influence of radical new designers, and a succession of post-War youth explosions culminating in the punk and new wave looks of the last decade. The narrative is based on research into the history of couture houses, retailers and manufacturers. The author has written widely on fashion as well as theatre and drama.
