Format: Paperback
This book is packed with information about 50s and 60s fashion.It has hundreds of pictures, and the most information (in one book) I have ever read about 50s fashion. I must say I disagree with other readers who badmouth the models. Would you rather the clothes be n a wire hanger? The information index about designers and values was great. It also has many great ads!

While the information in this book is fairly reliable and thorough, the photography leaves much to be desired. The models are not appropriate to the styles -- we're seeing 80s girls wearing 50s clothes that occasionally don't look like they fit well. Consequently this book doesn't look as polished and professional as it could (and should) be. If you just want a list of common labels of the 50s, you can't go wrong -- if you could get past the photography.

ugh! if you can get past looking at all these cheesy snapshots of people you've never met, i give you a lot of credit. the worst part is the fact that one girl *constantly* has her long hair draped over the front of the dresses she wears. you couldn't see the detail! what's the point? the dated typography was no less than annoying and the layout completely lacked balance. i couldn't get my money back fast enough.

I love this book! The color photos of fashions on real people are terrific and the text is fun and very informative. If you want a great reference on women's clothes of this era, YOU MUST have this book!
