Underwear: Fashion in detail, V&A publishing
on 23 October 2010
Another brilliant book from the V&A.
This book is well photograhed and informatively written, with just enough background on the subject matter and details about the garments featured. This is really handy for research into the history of lingerie, as well as wonderfully detailed photographs that are useful and inspirational for the fashion designer.
As a corsetier myself, I've found this book really inspiational. It shows examples of garments I have never seen on show at the V&A with enough detail to understand construction techniques and shows some absolutely wonderful examples of historical lingerie.
Fabulous as research material, great on the coffee table to look at beautiful things whilst enjoying afternoon tea.
