The Great Reset
1930s Fashion: The Definitive SourcebookFrom the turbulence of the 1930s emerged the Golden Age of Glamour. Framed by two world-changing events - the economic crash of 1929 and the outbreak of the Second World War - the 1930s saw new looks emerge and thrive, despite economic and social uncertainty. This was the decade of the bias cut, the statement shoulder, the puff sleeve, the tea dress, the fur shrug and the floor-length evening gown. It was also the era that saw Hollywood challenge Paris's fashion crown and its stars become fashion icons, signalling a new grown-up direction in womenswear design. Packed with over 500 original photographs, illustrations and sketches from the decade, this is an essential guide for any fashion historian, student or vintage enthusiast. These classic images have been selected from popular fashion publications of the day, mail-order catalogues and Hollywood studio press shots, including material from Chic Parisien, Harper's Bazaar, Sears, La Femme Chic and film studios Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Paramount. Authored and edited by renowned design historian, Charlotte Fiell, this volume also contains an authoritative introduction by fashion historian, Emmanuelle Dirix, as well as the biographies of the key designers and fashion houses of the period.

Eftersom jag är en stor vän av modet på 1930- och 1940-talet så gillar jag verkligen denna bok. Den ger mycket inspiration och idéer om man vill efterskapa kläderna och stilen. Ett plus är alla fina färgbilder.
