PEPIN is a series of thematic titles on various types of textile and dress - including unusual and overlooked styles. Each volume contains introductory text, fashion plates an/or historical images to show the subject in its original context and high-quality photographs and drawings of clothing, patterns, decorative details, etc. A wide selection of these images is saved on the enclosed CDs. 50s FASHION contains a large selection of fabulous textile pattern designs of the 1950s, in particular the second half of the decade, when there was an outburst of innovation and originality in print design. The unconventional treatment of floral and geometric compositions, as well as the layering of patterns, was completely different from preceding styles. In addition, this book contains many photographs of original clothes and fashion plates.
