What We Wore - A history of fashion from 1720 to 1982

What We Wore - A history of fashion from 1720 to 1982 | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

This unusual collection of programmes reveals what it took to be stylish through over 250 years of British history as it explores fashion from 1720 to 1982.

 

Included here is the first colour series made by the BBC. Pre-dating colour TV by a decade, this is the first time it has been available to view as it was intended. It also features some surprising live models.

 

Witness the gradual democratisation of fashion through the ages and see how clothes began to throw off the shackles of class from the 1960s onwards.

Playfulness abounds in dazzling Dutch designer Femke Agema's fashions

Playfulness abounds in dazzling Dutch designer Femke Agema's fashions | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it
