Here, in one beautifully illustrated, easy-reference volume, are the renowned costume drawings of John Peacock, charting the development of women's and men's clothing from the 1920's; the first modern decade of the twentieth century onwards. Arranged year by year, over 2000 exquisitely detailed illustrations show how fashion changed over time, from the boyish silhouette of the 1920s and the sophisticated outlines of the 1930s, through the utilitarian 1940s and the new femininity of the 1950s, to the radical styles of the 1960s, the vintage and ethnic trends of the 1970s, and the structured power dressing of the 1980s. Day wear, evening wear, sports and leisure wear, accessories, underwear and wedding wear are all covered, and complete descriptions of each garment accompany the drawings, itemizing color, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fastening, buttons, and belts.The reference section includes a chart that summarizes the evolution of fashion and garment-shapes through the decades, as well as biographies of outstanding designers of each era, and a full bibliography. Includes over 2000 duotone and black-and-white line illustrations.John Peacock's Complete Fashion Sourcebook will be an indispensable part of the library of fashion enthusiasts, historians and collectors, and is sure to provide inspiration to any designer or student working in the performing arts.
