Screen Search Fashion

Screen Search Fashion is an online resource that provides a thematic guide to aspects of 1920s and 1930s fashion and dress, as depicted in film from Screen Archive South East (SASE)'s collections. The vast potential of non-fiction film as a resource for students, who are interested in fashion and dress is highlighted by this resource, which has the potential to contribute to dress historians' developing interest in everyday fashions. The site provides a thematic guide to aspects of 1920s and 1930s fashion, as depicted in over 200 newly digitised stills and clips, enabling the researcher to discover key aspects of fashion and dress of the period in their historical and design contexts. The site includes links to records in Screen Archive South East's online database, where the films can be explored in further detail.
