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 sculptured power dressing to shapeless sportswear, The 80s & 90s charts the rise of the supermodel, the birth of the new man, and the impact of grunge on couture.
