Fascinating Fashion and much more, 16 Oct. 2013
I was captivated by the way the author led me into the lives of women of various occupations and social standing giving a unique insight into their world . Lucy Adlington's own wealth of knowledge and love of fashion shines through on every page of this well researched book . She draws on a wide range of sources and portrays the changing role of women whilst weaving the changes of fashion . Detailed descriptions are accompanied by beautifully presented photographs and illustrations .
I recommend this book to readers of all ages .I thoroughly enjoyed stepping into the world of my grandmother and I hope my grandchildren will be eager to learn of days gone by so admirably captured by the writer .
A must have to be dipped into again and again .
