The 20th century was a time of growth, both economic and population-wise. It saw two World Wars, and incredible human potential for innovation and destruction – often simultaneously.

It saw more people born than the previous three centuries. It saw us create in ways we never could have imagined possible. Well documented, for the most part, because of the invention of the internet and the propagation of knowledge it allowed and insisted upon.
Because of this, I was able to look back on the last century and compile this Pinterest board of overarching trends of footwear and clothing in the 20th century.
