In addition to descriptive details of dress, this study includes significant analysis of the social function of dress such as gender or age differentiation, community membership, ceremonial purpose, social status, and period aesthetics. More than 1700 illustrations depict the dress of women, men, and children from around the world. In addition, at the end of each chapter are examples of legacies and influences of ancient styles and far-flung cultures on modern EuroAmerican fashion. Illustrations of period artifacts are additionally augmented with line drawings showing details of garment construction or step-by-step methods of dressing such as draping the Roman toga or the Indian sari. The History of World Costume and Fashion is an excellent resource for students of historical dress, fashion designers, theater costumers, textile researchers, costume collectors, and curators, and anyone interested in clothing and dress customs of the world.
