  • "An authoritative and visually stunning look at the fashion of the 20th century, Dressing the Decades examines in depth the origins of the most important luxury garments. Each sumptuously illustrated chapter features a detailed overview of a particular decade, including the historical events, politics, technology, and advertising that inspired its most celebrated designs. By offering a thorough socio-economic context for the progress of high fashion through the years, the book provides a new perspective on such iconic items and significant trends as the cocktail dress, the Chanel suit, the tunic dress, boho chic, Futuristic chic, and others. The century’s most famous designers – including Lanvin, Chanel, Balenciaga, Dior, Givenchy, Versace, and Calvin Klein – are profiled here, their influence and imagery conveyed through annotated head-to-toe looks and photographs of signature pieces and outfits"--Publisher's description
