Product Description

Review

A welcome, needed update of an early landmark dictionary on dress; a must have for all who care about the A to Z of fashion. (Joanne B. Eicher, Regents Professor Emerita at the University of Minnesota)

Nearly forty years on and now hard to find save in reference libraries, the volume reappears as The Dictionary of Fashion History, skillfully enlarged and re-edited by Valerie Cumming, formerly Deputy Director of the Museum of London. Given fresh life and thorough coverage from 1900 through the present day, the new dictionary is once again ready to prove itself a trustworthy guide and companion to all those interested in the absorbing study of clothing. (Ann Saunders, Editor of Costume 1967-2007)

About the Author

Valerie Cumming is Chairman of The Costume Society, and formerly the Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Museum of London.

A great gift Jan. 17 2011

I bought this book for my daughter for Christmas, and she loved it. She's very interested in the culture and history of fashion, and as she said, this would also be useful when reading literature such as Jane Austen. Highly recommended!

This book is very thorough, covering many centuries of fashion history. It is a dictionary with text only and no images. Terms pertaining to men, women, and children are included. Definitions are clearly written. The book would have been much more expensive to print if it had had pictures.
