Event Details

This illustrated talk, partly inspired by Jayne's book Fashion in the 1920s (Shire, 2013) investigates dress in Britain between the two world wars. Considering cultural influences, from sports to popular music and Hollywood movies, we trace the development of different styles for men, women and children and also examine the fashion industry, shopping and home dressmaking.

 

This session is also a great opportunity to make use of Chelsea Library’s Costume Collection, representing a wonderful source of ideas, information and practical advice on the subject of costume and fashion from the earliest times to the present, and looking into the future.
