Product Details


“In the 1960s, the fashion world turned “topsy-turvy,” as TIME noted in 1967. Nearly every aspect of that revolutionary decade, from the civil-rights movement to the space race, was somehow reflected in the clothing worn by American women. The book Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip… takes a look at the influences behind and lasting influence of American fashion in the years between 1960 and 1973.”

“This catalog of an exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York (MCNY), edited by its curators, is comprised of eight essays taking various angles on American fashion in the 1960s to early 1970s, amply illustrated with images of garments from MCNY’s collection alongside vintage photos from Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar…. This accessible work stands out by contextualizing fashion alongside major social change—the Youthquake, birth control, the civil rights movement, and Vietnam War protests.”
Library Journal

“A fascinating look at a crucial shift in American fashion.”
