A History of Twentieth-Century Fashions

 'Vintage Swimwear' gives a chronological overview of the history of the bathing costume and celebrates this unique garment in all its manifestations.

Encompassing a century's worth of fashions - including the jet-set resort styles of 1920s Europe, the glamour looks of 1930s Hollywood screen sirens, and carefree Californian beach life in the 1950s and 60s - Vintafge Swimwear shows how the swimsuit has undergone transformations in line with our developing obssesions and lifestyle trends. Pivotal moments such as the birth of the swimwear category in beauty pageants, as well as influences from brands who broke new ground with their innovations, are captured in images and advertisements from the time, while specially photographed vintage pieces reveal the true-to-life fashions women wore.
