Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style

I was given this awesome book, Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style (Amazon), for Christmas and thought I would share a review here on the blog. It covers the entire know history of dress, literally, although I am going to mainly focus on the 20th century in the photos below. It covers fashion by era and each era has sub categories for day clothes, evening clothes, sportswear, major influences or trends for each era, major designers for each era, and garment silhouettes and construction methods for each era. So, basically it is very thorough in the information it gives. And the photos are simply beautiful! The garments chosen, the detailed photos and even period illustrations are gorgeous. I highly recommend it to a vintage fashion lover! Enjoy the photos below!
