Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a superb sourcebook for anyone truly interested in the history of fashion. It covers a wide range of time periods and cultures in a medium amount of detail. Not deep enough for anyone looking for mastery of a particular era but with a good overview of the historical, political and aesthetic background to clothing styles through the ages. Richly illustrated and a great gift for a fashion or textiles student, as opposed to someone looking for a "how-to style manual". This is a more scholarly work than that.
