This is a very nice and very shareable collection of (very short) film footage of fashion related items from the British Pathé archives. Of the 76 films that have been uploaded until now, the oldest dates back to the 1890s and the newest was made in 1970. Closer inspection reveals an emphasis 1950s and 1960s footage.
