Abstract

Learn about Western dress from the ancient world to today. Each chapter shows you the social, cross-cultural, environmental, geographic, and artistic influences on what people wore. More than 600 images help you to recognize recurring themes and concepts and understand the role of dress from a diverse, global perspective. The book covers each decade, from the 1920s to the present, in separate chapters to help you keep track of the changes in modern fashion. Learning Objectives, Key Terms, Discussion Questions and Exercises, and a Glossary help you master concepts.
