Alternate title:To the new Elizabethans (1945-)
Summary:Drabness and shortages marked the years after World War II until Dior's New Look arrived. And then a parade of innovations: artificial fibers, separates, casual clothes, stiletto heels and witches' toes, Teddy boys and zoot suits. Mary Quant arrived with clothes made for young people. Boutiques were in and people now asserted their own personalities in selecting their clothes.
