Omtale Costume and Fashion
From the momentous invention of the needle some 40,000 years ago to the development of denim, from Neolithic weavers to the biggest names in the fashion industry today - here is a matchless guide to the landmarks of costume history, to the forms and materials used through the ages, as well as to the underlying motives of fashion and the ways in which clothes have been used to protect, to express identity, and to attract or to influence others. This classic study by the unrivalled authority in the field has long been established as a key textbook for students of art, costume and fashion. Its final chapter, by Amy de la Haye, former Curator of Twentieth-Century Dress at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which chronicles the trends and developments in fashion since 1940, has been brought completely up to date for this fourth edition by the fashion writer Andrew Tucker, who discusses the chief developments at the turn of the century, including the reinvention of Gucci and Prada, the influence of urban sportswear on both men's and women's dress and the phenomenon of the must-have accessory.
