New Zealand Woman's Weekly Ready to Wear: Changing the Shape of New Zealand Fashion

Author(s): Jenny Lynch

Fashion/Costume

Ready to Wear captures the ups and downs, ins and outs of waistlines, hems, shoulders, skirts, hairstyles, underwear, shoes and cosmetics of the past 70 years in all their glory Ready to Wear is a lighthearted look at fashion in New Zealand through the decades. It combines entertaining commentary by Jenny Lynch with fabulous photographs from the New Zealand Woman's Weekly archives. The book looks at the way fashion has developed in this country: from ever-moving hemlines to increasingly skimpy bathing costumes, from skin-bleaching cr�������¨me to botox, Ready to Wear looks at the things New Zealand women have done to make themselves more fashionable. Ready to Wear is lavishly illustrated with full colour throughout. The illustrations include early fashion advertisements, influential European styles, and homegrown (and often homesewn) Kiwi clothing.
