This book takes us on a fascinating journey through a hundred years of fashion and style, both on the London catwalks and on the streets of ordinary towns. So much social history can be seen reflected in the clothes of ordinary people: Victorian attitudes were inseparable from the clothes of the time, the relaxed atmosphere and pleasure-seeking of the 1920s can be seen clearly in its pyjama-clad girls, wartime austerity is acutely visible in ration-driven outfits followed by the new couture of the 1950s - and then from the '60s to the end of the '90s we see a kaleidoscopic rush through a rapidly changing society.
