A year-by-year sourcebook illustrating the developments of 1970s fashion in detail, from day wear to wedding wear


In the 1970s, fashion became increasingly individualistic for both men and women. Off-the-peg clothes – chiefly in classic, easy-to-wear styles - were mixed with vintage fashions and with ethnic garments and accessories from around the world. The year-by-year format allows these changes to be shown in fascinating detail. Day Wear, Evening War, Sports and Leisure Wear, Accessories, Underwear and Wedding Wear are included, and complete descriptions of each garment accompany the drawings, itemizing colour, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fastenings, 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 1970s designers and a 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.
