Ready to Wear is a lighthearted look at fashion in New Zealand through the decades. It combines entertaining commentary by Jenny Lynch with fabulous photographs from the New Zealand Woman's Weekly archives. The book looks at the way fashion has developed in this country: from ever-moving hemlines to increasingly skimpy bathing costumes, from skin-bleaching crème to botox, Ready to Wear looks at the things New Zealand women have done to make themselves more fashionable. Ready to Wear is lavishly illustrated with full colour throughout. The illustrations include early fashion advertisements, influential European styles, and homegrown (and often homesewn) Kiwi clothing. Jenny Lynch is the author of New Zealand Woman's Weekly 70 Years - From Pavlovas to Prime Ministers and Our Queen. She is a former editor of the New Zealand Woman's Weekly, and is well known to the readers of the magazine. This 2004 Random House - Australia Paperback is in Very Good condition.
