Product Description

Review

Nearly forty years on and now hard to find save in reference libraries, the volume reappears as The Dictionary of Fashion History, skilfully enlarged and re-edited by Valerie Cumming, formerly Deputy Director of the Museum of London. Given fresh life and thorough coverage from 1900 through the present day, the new dictionary is once again ready to prove itself a trustworthy guide and companion to all those interested in the absorbing study of clothing. Ann Saunders, Editor of Costume 1967-2007 A welcome, needed update of an early landmark dictionary on dress; a must have for all who care about the A to Z of fashion. Joanne B. Eicher, Regents Professor Emerita at the University of Minnesota Concise yet detailed, academic, and fabulous, it is truly a dictionary. The Dictonary of Fashion History is an essential purchase for any library serving patrons with an interest in fashion, clothing, art, history, theater, anthropology, or nearly any area of the social sciences.

A great gift 17 Jan. 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter for Christmas, and she loved it. She's very interested in the culture and history of fashion, and as she said, this would also be useful when reading literature such as Jane Austen. Highly recommended!
