The 1920s


Bringing the Jazz Age to life through the clothes of the flappers and "Thoroughly Modern Millies," "Fashions of a Decade: The 1920s" revisits an important part of social and cultural history. As the fabric of society changed, fashion took on a life of its own - exploding with new colors and trends - alongside the innovative rhythms and styles of jazz music. It was a period of youthful escapism, a reaction to the stern clothes and strict behavior that was expected during the Victorian Age, and this revised, full-color volume captures the essence of that social change.
