The golden period of time – the 1950s has given birth to many extraordinary things. These are the first modern credit card, first “Peanuts” cartoon strip, colour TV, cat seat belts, DNA discovered, first playboy magazine, opening of Disneyland etc. It was also during that era that fashion and style clothing emerged. Style clothing in the 1950s was a way to express conformity and individual identity.
This era saw an explosion with multitude of pleats, fabulous collar, excess fabrics and showing off intricate gatherings. This was especially for women’s dresses that were all made of the best rayon, nylon, leather, taffeta and wool. All were made in the boldest and brightest patterns and colours. Tight bodices and flowing or fitted skits, sexy undergarments and high heels were also part of the 1950s fashion that still has an appeal.
