Publishers Description

The most beguiling guide to fashion and style through the centuries now adds another 500 years to its coverage—so it's thoroughly up-to-date with the most recent international movements. From the simplicity of eleventh century dress to the excesses of punk, from the chic Madame de Pompadour to Dior and St. Laurent, this invaluable, thoroughly illustrated work showcases kings and courtiers, soldiers and dandies, musicians and models, adults and children. Informative captions accompany every color plate, providing significant details on the garment, the wearer's rank, and the period. Designers, photographers, wardrobe mistresses, historians, and anyone who loves beautiful clothing will find this a pleasure.


“A valuable and interesting research tool. Recommended.”—Library Journal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It's good for descriptions and definitions  May 27, 2007
I don't regret getting this book, but I have seen better. The illustrations are a good source but not an ideal one. I did notice, and maybe it's just me, that the drawings were not proportional and a little too cartoony (it's definately a personal preference). However the garments themselves are nicely drawn and will be helpful to me in the future.
good for fashion design and for fashion history students  Apr 18, 2006
a book with just illustrations and some helpful notes on the garment details. it doesn't dig deep into history and all that, but visually, it's's essential for your studies...
A Very Good Reference Book..  Jun 4, 2001
I just recommended this book to a friend who wanted depictions of clothes from 1650-1700. It really is a very good timeline of fashion. Also,the drawings are very colorful and full of detail. A worthwhile investment for anyone who's interested in costuming or European history.
The author is an unoriginal, untalented illustator & writer  Jan 21, 2000
This is an absolutely pathetic book. The illustrator/author merely copied famous works of art from the Reniassance period. Wait, I shouldn't say copied: He made weak attempts at the imitation of these masterpieces. Could he not come up with something slightly original in text and drawing? Please save your money.
...not the best one  Jun 2, 1999
This book has really nice pictures at all but after learning so much about the history of costume at university I was really unsatisfied with this book. It could have been more structure in it, too.
