Naturally '70s fabric

by Constance Korosec | 19 November 1999
PAPERBACK
Category: Fashion & Design
Fabric of the 1970s was as distinct as the clothing into which it was made. Bold colors and patterns that dominated fabric design ranged from flamboyant to garish. Dizzying complementary color and pattern combinations, called psychedelic, were adapted from sources as diverse as non-Western folk art and Western technology. The fibers of the 1970s were made of materials in two general groups: the naturals and the synthetics. This book concentrates on the natural materials and presents a visual sampling of silk, cotton, flax, and wool. The prints include solids, stripes, plaids, geometrics, florals, paisleys, and much more to offer a pictorial reference for future designs while providing a visual record of the fashions and fabric trends that shaped the decade. This book is a delight for historians, designers, and all with an eye for fashion, fabrics, and fun. A glossary, index, bibliography, and informative captions included.
