This project was submitted for a course on twentieth-century fashion history. I researched my family’s fashion using primary sources (photographs and interviews) to determine how closely family members followed fashion. We used the fashion curve published in Solomon and Rabolt’s Consumer Behavior in Fashion (2004) to determine fashion adoption.
