Containing page after page of fabulous Twenties fashion, this exhaustive sourcebook documents the season-by-season fashions of the Twenties' Jazz Age with an impressive selection of over 500 original photograph and prints. This is an essential handbook for all fashion historians, students and vintage enthusiasts with its beautifully beaded dresses, cloche hats and strappy shoes. It reveals the daring elegance of the fashionable flappers and "bright young things" who came to define this remarkable era of female emancipation and stylish looks.

An informative introduction written by fashion historian Emmanuelle Dirix highlights the fashion trends of the period and provides a fascinating analysis of the emerging fashion industry from haute couture to ready-to-wear.
