In the 1930s, the boyish flapper fashion of the 1920s gave way to womanly curves. The clothes were soft and feminine. Women grew their hair out and styled it into finger waves and pin curls. Sweetheart necklines and suntans were in style, but life was far from glamorous for the millions of Americans who lost everything during the Great Depression. Readers will learn about the fashions, fads, pop culture icons, and world events of the 1930s.

The American look

fashion, sportswear and the image of women in 1930s and 1940s New York

Author: Rebecca Arnold

Publisher: I B Tauris & Co Ltd

ISBN: 9781860647635

Category: Design

Page: 288

Drawing on a wonderful array of sources, from fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue to department store records and surviving garments, The American Look presents a rich and multi-faceted exploration of the development of a distinct New York fashion style in the 1930s and 1940s. Tracing the growth of the sportswear fashion industry from its functional origins to its adoption as casual wear for all occasions by career women and housewives alike, author Rebecca Arnold shows how New York's emergent style in the interwar period was both dynamic and modern--much like the city itself. She argues that its essence was expressive of the American ideal of athletic, long-limbed figures and related to theories of body image, gender and class; that its designers such as Claire McCardell, Clare Potter and Tina Leser, were themselves embodiments of the modern, active woman; and that its style was connected not just to ideals of patriotism and democracy, but to notions of cleanliness and hygiene. Beautifully illustrated, The American Look offers a unique insight into fashion, modernity and ideas of Americanness in the twentieth century.
