Decades is a new monthly series on The Style Weaver that will highlight the major fashion styles, designers, influencers, and events of every decade from the 1900’s to today. Many of the things you'll read about as we go through each decade have provided the inspiration and foundation for what we see in fashion today.
“One learns many lessons in 40 years of work. I cannot forget what I learned from the past--and what I did in the past. You don't become an important designer without study and training. You cannot be a designer without knowing how to cut a dress. The only way you learn these things is by studying the work of those who worked before you.” – Valentino as told to Time Magazine, February 2003
