Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 050027973X, Paperback)

In the 1930s the boyish look of the previous decade gave way to a more feminine silhouette, which defined the waist, accentuated the shouders and narrowed the hips. The year-by-year format allows these developments to be shown in detail. Day Wear, Evening Wear, Sport and Leisure Wear, Accessories, Underwear and Wedding Wear are included, and complete descriptions of each garment accompany each of the drawings, itemizing colour, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fastenings, buttons and belts. The reference section includes a chart summarizing at a glance the evolution of fashion and garment-shapes, as well as biographies of outstanding 1930s designers.
