" bring you this unusual collection of programmes which reveal what it took to be stylish through over 250 years of British history. Included here is the first colour series made by the BBC.

Witness the gradual democratisation of fashion through the ages and see how clothes began to throw off the shackles of class from the 1960s onwards."
