Although some of the photographs are studio portraits of the rich and famous, the middle classes are also represented here, as are politicians and intellectuals, whose dress is often in telling contrast to the lavish fabrics and impractical designs worn by high society. Each photograph is accompanied by a full caption that not only describes costume and accessories and -- where relevant -- setting, but also gives background information, besides discussing contemporary dress codes, what the clothes felt like to wear, and how fashion developed during the period. To do this, the author has supported original research with quotations and anecdotes from fashion magazines, newspapers, memoirs, novels and other works from or about the period. This book is an absorbing and informative account of the fashion and social history of the twenties and thirties, and will be enjoyed by everyone interested in fashion, photography and the interwar years. -- From publisher's description."@en ;
