'The purpose of most fashion is to be ostentatiously non-functional.'

In the last episode of this series looking at the history of fashion, presenter Doris Langley Moore shows how protection from the elements has always been of secondary importance. We also see how attitudes to covering up changed completely in the 1920s, when the acquisition of a suntan became de rigueur for those serious about style.

The Redgrave family are represented in this episode by a 14-year-old Lynn Redgrave, who later went on to star in 'Georgy Girl' (for which she won a Golden Globe) and, more recently, 'Shine' and 'Gods and Monsters'.
