This was the decade that introduced MTV, celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty, and witnessed the demise of the Berlin Wall. It was also a period when T-shirts became canvases for message art and a new awareness for keeping fit opened the door for sports apparel and jogging suits. With fashion designers exploring a variety of styles, everything was acceptable in the 1980s— from ethnic apparel and cowboy garb to ruffles and flourishes.
Tom Tierney captures the essence of this decade with clothing styles for three generations of a typical American family. Grandparents and Mom and Dad and their six children are accompanied by 30 costumes, including shirtdresses, tunics, leotards, business suits, windbreakers, denim jeans, a down-filled coat, and wedding apparel, as well as sneakers, leg warmers, baseball caps, and other accessories.
Collectors and paper doll fans of all ages will be delighted with these treasures from the past, as will anyone with pleasant memories of the Eighties.
