Summary
A magazine-style monograph purportedly showing post-WWII fashion in California. Instead, the focus is on Southern California, particularly Los Angeles, with much attention paid to the then-current Hollywood celebrities and their styles of dress. There are scenes of Southern California (some of them without celebrities) to show the range of topography, along with a few depictions of industries. The color map folding out from the center ("California postwar fashion map : 1945, authentic designs of California Apparel Creators") shows the full length of the state, with selected places and landmarks highlighted throughout, in order to give context to the fashions worn by the people depicted near those places; there are even people superimposed over identified cruise, air and rail lines out in the Pacific or in neighboring states, to show off travel fashions. The bulk of the issue runs from p. 71-122; all the rest is advertising, mostly for industries and stores related to clothing and dress
