The 1960s was dominated by young fashion. For women, the mature sophistication of the 1950s gave way to a straight, mini-skirted, girlish silhouette. Radical developments also took place in men’s fashion. The year-by-year format allows these changes to be shown in fascinating detail. Day Wear, Evening Wear, Sports and Leisure Wear. Accessories, Underwear and Wdding Wear are included, and complete descriptions of each garment accompany the drawings, itemizing colour, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fasterings, buttons, belts, etc. The reference section includes a chart summarizing at a glance the evolution of fashion and garment-shapes, as well as biographies of outstanding 1960s designers and bibliography.
John Peacock’s Fashion Sourcebooks are destined to become an indispensable part of the library of any fashion enthusiast, historian or collector, and are sure to provide inspiration to any designer or student working in the performing arts.
