The Evolution of Fashion (Classic Reprint)

Costume (portions of which originally appeared in theL ndgate I lhistrated Magazine, under the editorship of Mr. A. J. Bowden), I desire to acknowledge the valuable assistance I have received from sources not usually available to the public ;also my indebtedness to the following authors, from whose works I have quoted :M r. Beck, Mr. R. Davey, Mr. E. Rimmel, Mr. Knight, and the late Mr. J. R. Planchd. I also take this opportunity of thanking Messrs, Liberty and Co., Messrs. Jay, Messrs. E. R, Garrould, Messrs. Walery, Mr. Box, and others, who have offered me special facilities for consulting drawings, engravings, c., in their possession, many of which they have courteously allowed me to reproduce, by the aid of Miss Juh et Hensman, and other artists. The book lays no claim to being a technical treatise on a subject which is practically inexhaustible, but has been written with the intention of bringing before the general public in a popular manner circumstances which have influenced in a marked degree the wearing apparel of theB ritish Nation.

Fashion 101: A Crash Course in Clothing

Fashion 101: A Crash Course in Clothing

Each year, we spend hours upon hours shopping and getting dressed, but do we ever actually think about what we’re wearing? For example, what’s the name of the style of your shirt? Who invented your favorite jeans cut? Or who made your baby-doll nightie famous? There is a story behind every piece of clothing and, with Fashion 101, you’ll learn what those stories are and more: Where did the miniskirt come from? Why has the military had a stronger influence on fashion than either Audrey Hepburn or Gwen Stefani? How do denim makers work those perfect “whiskers” into your “worn-out” jeans? Filled with tons of intriguing factoids about designers and celebrities, and more than 300 illustrations, Fashion 101 offers the total scoop on underwear, outerwear, accessories, and everything in between. With this crash course, you’ll learn not only how to put together smarter looks, but also how to become a fashion expert in the process.

This book is a great blend of history, factoids and advice, covering a wide spectrum of fashion from the go-go boot to the corset.
I have never discovered anything like this before and would deffinately recommend it to anyone interested in fashion, whether it is a fashion student or someone trying to improve the contents of their own closet.

This review is from: Fashion 101: A Crash Course in Clothing (Paperback)

This book as decent, it’s great if you’re looking to know types of pants or types of collars, but I was hoping to learn more. Most of it consisted of things anyone would know. A platform shoe, a sports bra, a vest. Simple articles of clothing people wear all the time made this book very generic and not very imformative to someone aspiring to learn more about fashion and what makes it work. However, the one feature I loved was where it described who made it to begin with, and who made it hot. If you’re looking for fashion history this book could be quite useful. Good luck, I hope you find what you are looking for.

This review is from: Fashion 101: A Crash Course in Clothing (Paperback)

This book has given me a new perspective and puts a rich history into the things I wear everyday. A detailed clothing bible if you will, this book covers every type of fashion trend, including hot pants, all the way to every accesory or shoe one could want to know about. It gives hot new trends and old classic styles their names, talking about where things really originiated, making me feel more informed about fashion and even sound smarter! :) All in all this is a great book and a MUST have if you spend as much time as me choosing my outfit everyday!
