The Book

Learn about Western dress from the ancient world to today. Each chapter establishes the social, cross-cultural, environmental, geographic, and artistic influences on what people wore, providing important context to understand the role of dress from a diverse, global perspective. More than 600 images help you to recognize recurring themes, and box features throughout highlight contemporary voices and the impact the fashions of the time had on the generations that followed. The book covers each decade, from the 1920s to the present, in separate chapters that follow the gradual changes in modern fashion.
