Introduction to 20th-Century Fashion - Victoria and Albert Museum

Introduction to 20th-Century Fashion


Victoria and Albert Museum 

The world's leading museum of art and design

Throughout the 20th century cross-cultural and historical influences exerted a profound impact upon fashion design.             The styles, designs and materials of other times and cultures became more accessible to designers at first hand as             improved travel and communications enabled continents to be crossed with ease. With developments in               photographic and printing techniques, they were also able to glean ideas from secondary sources such as lavishly               illustrated books, magazines and journals. From the 1950s European designers needed only to look around them to             see a rich variety of clothing from all corners of the world.
