A Pictorial tour through fashions of the 20th Century

As we embark on this year's "Women's History Month" someone mentioned that fashion plays a huge role in societal development -- and that some of the world's most beloved fashion designers are women! So we pulled from the Design-bookshelf's playbook and opened these books that follow a bit of the path of fashion. The samples we've included here are drawings or actual clip art that appeared in publications. They all give a visual waltz through the 19th and 20th centuries of fashion! Enjoy! February 25, 2015
