The 1930's

The 30's are often overlooked in fashion history because of the Great Depression but the 30's were full of movie glamour and fashion innovations. Waist lines moved up to the natural waist, the wedge heel was invented by Salvatore Ferragamo and the bias cut was used in evening wear. Hems were not as short as the roaring twenties but they no longer grazed the floor.
