Foreword by Zandra Rhodes A visual journey through the fashion of the decades, Vintage Fashion shows you how to identify key designers, shapes, textiles, stitching, and other details and characteristics that define the most influential pieces of the twentieth century (up to and including the 1990s). Each decade ends with a ‘key looks’ spread showing an at-a-glance view of the important shapes, colours and looks that defined the era.
The book concludes with a shopping guide, which offers pointers on sourcing and caring for original vintage pieces, along with a glossary of fashion terms and the century’s most collectable designers.
