Item description for The Visual Dictionary of Architecture (Reference) by Gavin Ambrose, Paul Harris & Sally Stone...
From A-line to yukata, from batik to yoke, The Visual Dictionary of Fashion explores and explains the many terms used in the fashion industry. Each term is defined and put in context to give the reader a clear understanding of fashion terminology. More than 270 common fashion terms are explained and illustrated, from practical day-to-day words such as lapel, pattern, and crewelwork to conceptual terms such as postmodernism. The Visual Dictionary of Fashion is like having a personal translator for rag-trade shop talk.
