Reviews - What do customers think about Fashion History (Icons)?

Elegant little volume  Feb 20, 2007
This handsome little paperback features excellent photographs of some of the period costumes preserved in the Kyoto Costume Institute, in Japan. Details of embroidery, and accoutrements like hats and camisoles, etc., are remarkable. The exquisite garments range in date from the lavish era of Marie Antoinette through the late 20th century, and include pieces from major couture houses still active today. All in all, a nice selection of works from the Institute's collection. Readers wishing to see additional costumes should access the Institute's web site, which is available in both Japanese and English.
Fashion. from the 18th to the 20th century (Icons)  Aug 26, 2006
The book has beautiful photographs. Short descriptions of the times are given with each period. Good for a general overview and to see some detailing of garments. Your would need another book if you were doing an indepth study. I do love the photos in this book. This would be a good companian to one with more written information..because of the photos. The BIGGEST issue I have is that I bought the book brand new and after the first week the pages started falling out. So I gave it a lower score because of book construction. I would recommend this book to a begining designer or someone considering a design career or as a companian book to one with more written details.
