The Art Of Hosiery

Nadine is a vintage fashion collector from the UK. Nadine started collecting hosiery, when one day she found a 1920 white silk stocking in an antique store. After trying it on, she became curious about its history. Eventually, the studying of the hosiery's history, turned into a hobby.

On the site, the history is divided into four categories. "Silk & Artificial Stockings" (the early stocking), "Nylon Stockings" (start of 1930's -), "The New Pantyhose" (1960's - 1990's) and "Hosiery Today".

It's interesting to see how decades ago, the society regarded this fashion.
