5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion in Details 1700- 2000 22 April 2014
By K. Lipio - Published on Amazon.com

What a great idea, it is about time that they incorporated the series of books into one big book that can provide a better view of the Fashions in details. This book magnifies the details of the garment and gives you a very detailed explanation as to why the trim or application was used in the period. It is a highly recommended book for anyone interested in Costume designing. The changes in Fashion provides you with a good insight to the details that play an important part of the period.
