Summary

Completely revised in full-color, Fashions of a Decade: The 1930s explores the social and cultural aspects of history by examining the role of fashion as it made its way through the Great Depression. Cheaper fabrics that imitated luxury items such as nylon and artificial silks became popular, along with garments that featured a more muted palette and longer, more flowing lines. Hollywood icons such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers set the mood for idealized glamour, as did the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, as they pushed the bounds of fashion to historic new heights.
