Published in in the summer of 2010 in print and online, the 10-volume Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion is the first comprehensive reference work to explore all aspects of dress and fashion globally - from pre-history to the present day. Arranged geographically and written by an international team of experts, the Encyclopedia will serve as the go-to source for all issues relating the art and anthropology of costume, dress, and fashion the world over for students, scholars, members of the design and fashion industries, and fashion aficionados for years to come.

The Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion brings together for the first time the work of over 600 renowned scholars from every part of the globe. All articles have been specially commissioned and particular effort has been made to commission articles by indigenous scholars with in-depth local knowledge.

Covering an area of spectacularly diverse topography and climate, from arid Mexican deserts to tropical islands and from Amazonian rainforests to the high Andes, this volume explores the dress traditions of the many peoples inhabiting Latin America and the Caribbean. The style and glamour of Latin American cultural icons such as Eva Perón, Frida Kahlo, and Carmen Miranda have long fascinated the world, and Caribbean carnival is internationally renowned. But this region also has an extraordinarily rich legacy dating back to ancient cultures, such as the Aztecs, Incas, and Maya, as well as unique records in the form of pictogram books indicating the early use of textiles and clothing types. In this important reference work, these topics, as well as the lasting impact of Sapnish and Portuguese colonial activity, are introduced and contextualized to show how modern societies that are fully participating in globalized commerce have developed in this region. With over 250 images, Latin America and the Caribbean is an invaluable reference tool and an essential starting point for anyone wishing to learn about the importance of dress to this vibrant region.

About the Author:


Editor Margot Blum Schevill is a museum anthropologist, textile scholar, and author of books on Maya and Andean textiles.

Review:


"The writing is readable for the layperson as well as the student or scholar... The inclusion of peripheral subjects illustrates hat there are many aspects of fashion and dress, and fashion and dress play a role in many aspects of human life" - Booklist


"This work is arguably the new benchmark in its field." - Library Journal


"In this age of reliance on search engines for research, the Berg taxonomy offers a refreshingly direct means of accessing the increasingly diverse range of literature on clothing and dress. This tool will aid individuals with general, specialized, and visual study needs." -Paula A. Baxter, Curator, Art & Architecture Collection, The New York Public Library


"The study of fashion (or dress) speaks to key research fields within human geography, including the body, corporeality, consumption, commodity chains and retailing. The BFL will be a key resource for researchers and graduate students in the field."-Nicky Gregson, Professor, Department of Geography, University of Sheffield


"This is a really worthwhile project. It will be useful for students at many levels of costume/dress/fashion studies. It is not intimidating and has the potential to expand and is flexible which is invaluable for a resource like this."-Valerie Cumming, Chairman, The Costume Society, and formerly Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Museum of London
