Description : Taking a global, multicultural, social, and economic perspective, this work explores the diverse and colourful history of human attire. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, articles cover the evolution of clothing utility, style, production, and commerce, including accessories (shoes, hats, gloves, handbags, and jewellery) for men, women, and children. Dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, religious observances, rites of passages, and other human needs and purposes - from hunting and warfare to sports and space exploration - are examined in depth and detail. Fashion and design trends in diverse historical periods, regions and countries, and social and ethnic groups constitute a major area of coverage, as does the evolution of materials (from animal fur to textiles to synthetic fabrics) and production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design). Dress as a reflection of social status, intellectual and artistic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing are recurring themes. Influential figures and institutions in fashion design, industry and manufacturing, retail sales, production technologies, and related fields are also covered.

Description : Most surveys of historical dress have been written solely from a Eurocentric perspective with only passing references to the dress traditions of the rest of the world. In the History of World Costume and Fashion, Daniel Delis Hill presents a global view of costumes and cultural styles including those of Asia, Africa, the Islamic world, and ancient Americas. 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.

Description : In September 1939, just three weeks after the outbreak of war, Gladys Mason wrote briefly in her diary about events in Europe: 'Hitler watched German siege of Warsaw. City in flames.' And, she continued, 'Had my wedding dress fitted. Lovely.' For Gladys Mason, and for thousands of women throughout the long years of the war, fashion was not simply a distraction, but a necessity - and one they weren't going to give up easily. In the face of bombings, conscription, rationing and ludicrous bureaucracy, they maintained a sense of elegance and style with determination and often astonishing ingenuity. From the young woman who avoided the dreaded 'forces bloomers' by making knickers from military-issue silk maps, to Vogue's indomitable editor Audrey Withers, who balanced lobbying government on behalf of her readers with driving lorries for the war effort, Julie Summers weaves together stories from ordinary lives and high society to provide a unique picture of life during the Second World War. As a nation went into uniform and women took on traditional male roles, clothing and beauty began to reflect changing social attitudes. For the first time, fashion was influenced not only by Hollywood and high society but by the demands of industrial production and the pressing need to 'make-do-and-mend'. Beautifully illustrated and full of gorgeous detail, Fashion on the Ration lifts the veil on a fascinating era in British fashion.
