Susannah Handley (au). Nylon, the wonder fabric, debuted at the 1939 N.Y. World’s Fair & created a sensation. Later,  Europeans & Americans greeted synthetic fabrics so quickly that they brought about a “fashion revolution.” The book discusses the role of technology in modern life, the changing nature of popular taste, the fortunes of the late-20th-century garment industry, & the design of innovations & artistry that synthetics permit, even encourage. Tells the stories about companies like DuPont & its competitors & imitators. Introduces readers to the world of clothing design & manufacture, tracing the development of fabrics from the semi-synthetic “Art Silk” early in the century to polyester, Lycra, & the newest technological fibers & weaves.
