9781408126370: Chronology of Fashion

The Chronology of Fashion traces the history of fashion from the late 18th century up to the present. Following a strict chronology, it pinpoints the times when a distinctive style of suit or dress, hat or handbag, cut or style of hair or fabric, or indeed an entire look attained its peak of popularity and influence. Highly illustrated with full figure images, silhouettes and swatches of materials, the book also looks at key designers, how fashion has played a crucial role in art and film, and the trends that identified and defined various periods. This book should be a must for anyone interested in fashion and its development.

About the Author:

N.J Stevenson has worked as a fashion writer and stylist since 1996, after leaving her first job as Girl Friday for designer Katharine Hammett. An alumna of the London College of Fashion, she specialised in vintage fashion before gaining an MA in Fashion Curation. She now lectures in Styling and Fashion in Film at the University of the Arts. She curated a major retrospective of the designer Bill Gibb at the Fashion and Textile Museum in 2008 and she frequently contributes to a wide variety of magazines.

Review:

[Stevenson] perceptively charts the influences and evolution of styles over a period of time ... Complimenting Stevenson's refreshing textual approach which brings a real clarity to the multi-layered development of styles, innovatively the book magnifies key details on specific pictures, and utilises fabric swatches and silhouettes, all of which combine to make this highly informed and readable book also a highly useable resource. * Plectrum * Dressmakers, desingers, costume makers and those interested in fashion history, vintage clothing and retro styling will love this title ... a fascinating book to read as well as a delight to peruse * Sewing World *
