This is a comprehensive view of the history of twentieth-century dress in the United States, as it has developed in the context of tumultuous change. By placing dress in its proper context, the authors show how social, economic, and artistic conditions and trends influenced dress and how dress, including its production and marketing, played a role in each era.
