This meticulously researched and lavishly illustrated book charts the history of street fashion from its origins in high couture to its appearance on the streets. Beginning in the post-war period and largely picture-led with photographs from the Press Association archives, its accompanying text also examines the social roots of what we wear and what it expresses about ourselves and the times we live in. Fashion trends, together with their influences, are tracked and illustrated alongside the changing attitudes and accessibility that made fashion a part of daily life.
