Synopsis

Turn back the calendar pages for a memorable jaunt through the early '70s! The clothing is very wearable, while being sought after by collectors. Drawn from Sears catalogs of the period, this entertaining book is an invaluable help in identifying and pricing vintage clothing and accessories. The captions provide accurate and detailed information about the many fashions illustrated in over 400 color photos. Today, clothing from the early 1970s is extremely popular on the vintage market, both to retail buyers, who enjoy wearing the styles, and to designers, who use the styles for inspiration. Here are examples of all the trendy styles of the period: mini skirts and dresses; hip-huggers and bell-bottoms; skimp-sleeved pullovers and slink knit shirts; mini and maxi coats; jumpsuits and tunics; chunky heeled and platform shoes. The book focuses on women's fashions, but includes examples of collectible men's and children's fashions as well.

Desire Smith is a collector, lecturer, and consultant on antique and vintage fashions and accessories. She is a member of the Costume Society of America and sells vintage clothing at Freame & Smith, Lambertville, New Jersey.
