History Of The Garment 

The 50’s saw a return to fashion and the growing popularity of the handbag. The fifties isn’t always seen as a particularly exciting era for fashion for many, but more as an extension of the 40’s and the drabness of the post war years. However Jackie Kennedy was seen as a fashion ikon and with her perfect white pearls and tailored suit dresses saw the hand held handbag which she was often seen to use made this type of handbag very popular.
