Omtale A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion
A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion presents an authoritative survey from ancient times to the present. This set of six volumes covers over 2,500 years of dress and fashion.

Volume 1: Antiquity (500BCE-800AD), edited by Mary Harlow
Volume 2: The Medieval Age (800-1450), edited by Sarah-Grace Heller
Volume 3: The Renaissance (1450-1650), edited by Elizabeth Currie
Volume 4: The Age of Enlightenment (1650-1800), edited by Peter McNeil
Volume 5: The Age of Empire (1800-1920), edited by Denise Amy Baxter
Volume 6: The Modern Age (1920-2000+), edited by Alexandra Palmer

Each volume discusses the same key themes in its chapters:

1. Textiles
2. Production and Distribution
3. The Body
4. Belief
5. Gender and Sexuality
6. Status
7. Ethnicity
8. Visual Representations
9. Literary Representations

This structure means readers can either have a broad overview of a period by reading a volume or follow a theme through history by reading the relevant chapter in each volume.

Superbly illustrated, the full six-volume set combines to present the most authoritative and comprehensive survey available on dress and fashion through history.
