Joy Shih and Schiffer Publications have done it again

Joy Shih and Schiffer Publications have done it again. Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Late 1950's is an excellent Primary resource for Costume and Fashion Designers. I find that the layout and the organization of this book much better than Schiffer's "early 1950's". Unfortunately it only focuses on Sears Catolgues' perspective of this era, which is only middle America, blue collar, suburbia.

Slip into a bold and colorful era in cloth design. Once fashionable decorative fabrics for the home, these large and sometimes splashy print designs were used for drapery, upholstery, slipcover, and tablecloth fabrics. Designs prevalent in the 1950s included tropical scenes, American West motifs, sports and sporting events, nautical and boating themes, kitchen designs, and exotic foreign destinations.

Meet the book that defined fashion for generations of Americans in the twentieth century-the Sears Catalog. Current values for most items are included as a reference guide for collectors of 1950s vintage clothing

Meet the book that defined fashion for generations of Americans in the twentieth century-the Sears Catalog. European couture designs were beautiful in fashion magazines but the average person with an average income shopped for clothing in department stores. Current values for most items are included as a reference guide for collectors of 1950s vintage clothing. Who can forget slim sheaths and whirly skirts, rolled-up jeans and pedal pushers, bouffant slips and taffeta prom gowns, fraternity prep jackets and children's western wear? With more than 400 color photographs, this book offers a nostalgic look into fashionable clothing of an era which defined an entire generation.

Comments to eBook Conversational Prints: Decorative Fabrics of the 1950s (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
Justie
I collect 1950's novelty and conversational prints so I am familiar with all of the truly wonderful prints in existence. This book didn't touch on hardly any of them. I also felt that it wasted time showing multiple color ways of the same print. The manufacturers were not listed for any of them nor were the artists. Not a good resource.
DrayLOVE
Great book - I collect vintage fabrics and love to compare prints
