It only took the genius of designers like Paul Poiret and Natalia Goncharova to transform these into garments that were bold, inventive and quintessentially modern. Ballet, theatre and cinema all lent ideas to mainstream fashion, as did artists of the avant-garde such as Sonia Delaunay."--BOOK JACKET.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Art Deco Fashion is a celebration of the most glamorous era of the last century - the roaring twenties.
The emancipated climate of the post-war years signalled a huge increase in sport and leisure activities, greater opportunities to travel, and a general indulgence in a more opulent lifestyle - all reflected in the stunning fashion of the era.
From beaded evening dresses for dancing the Charleston, to sporty outfits for golf, tennis and swimming, or garments designed for wearing whilst travelling in luxury liners, trains or streamlined cars, clothes in the 1920 became a symbol of a more liberated lifestyle.
This stunning compendium of deco fashion conjures the world of Hollywood and F. Scott Fitzgerald through a wealth of evocative images from fashion magazines, posters and photographs, as well as sumptuous pictures of stylish outfits for all occasions from the V&A's world-famous dress collection.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 94) and index.
