Fashion and Accessories, 1840-1980

Author(s): Geoffrey Warren

Fashion

There is an old English saying: "Manners maketh man." One can also claim that "accessories maketh clothes." This new book sets out to demonstrate the variety and beauty of fashion accessories during the hundred-year period beginning in 1840. Fashion has always reflected the social, sexual, and economic spirit of its age. Clothing and accessories also express the status, aspirations, and wealth of the wearer. Most books on fashion tend to divide clothing and accessories into decades. This book seeks find the natural shifts from one fashion theme to another. The accessories are shown with a full-length, dressed figure and explanatory text for context. This is an invaluable book for collectors, fashion historians, designers, and theatrical costumers.
