1900-20: Linen & Lace
20th Century Fashion is a time capsule of clothing for every decade from the 1900s through the 1990s. This exciting series presents style and design as they relate to the world events, people, politics, social change, and technology of each era. Dynamic text and colorful images, along with a fashion time line that places clothing design alongside other world events, capture the glamour and artistry of fashion. Also enjoy our companion series 20th Century Design, which documents the evolution of design (page 55).
From delicate tea gowns to the excesses of Paul Poiret, 1900-20 charts the rise of the suffragettes, the birth of jazz, and the impact of the automobile on couture.
