Synopsis

Fashions of a Decade The 1950s by Patricia Baker

Clothing has been a consistent recorder of history through the years, documenting the heights of fashion as it threaded its way through post-war society. Fashions of a Decade: The 1950s traces this intricate history, from nylon stockings and stiletto heels to full skirts and slim-fitting bodices to Baby Doll nightwear and textured leisure suits. An essential resource for history and fashion lovers alike, this revised, full-color volume brings to life a fascinating decade of clothing history.
