The era of the Titanic witnessed a considerable shift in style, particularly for women, with overtly feminine Edwardian fashions being replaced by straighter lines that heralded the 1920s. There were, however, enormous variations between classes - while the attire of ladies in first class was luxurious, those below decks dressed in second-hand or home-made clothes. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and examples of clothes from museum collections, Titanic Style describes passenger dress on that last fearful voyage.
