Fashion has always been a marker of society's social, cultural, and political influences, but rarely has it been the focus of history's detailed eye. The highly illustrated "Fashions of a Decade" set provides an exciting new way for students to learn about history by depicting how fashion trends throughout the 20th century evolved with the political and societal conventions of each decade. From the gaudy to the austere, from the shocking to the sublime, this set chronicles the modern world's continual desire to express and mold itself through fashion. Featuring many new full-color photographs and illustrations, each volume in the set has been thoroughly revised and updated, and the last volume, "Fashions of a Decade: The 1990s", now provides complete coverage of the final decade of the 20th century. Perfect for young adults or general readers interested in the social history of costume and fashion in the 20th century, this set provides another look at one of history's most distinctive indicators.
