Description
In the early years of Edward VII's reign, fashionable European ladies wore delicately colored, flower-and-lace-trimmed trailing gowns over tight corsets, accessorized by elaborate hairstyles. But from about 1906, these excessively luxurious fashions began to fade away as a new French designer, Paul Poiret, revolutionized fashion with his richly colored column gowns and turbans. By 1914, women's wear was transformed, as the most elegant ladies wore boldly hued, dramatically stylized kimono wraps, slender hobble skirts, ankle-skimming tunic dresses, and turbans. With period illustrations throughout, this book explains these new developments in fashion, for ladies of means and women on a budget, and also considers the parallel evolution of men's wear, including the development of the modern three-piece suit and less formal fashions.
