About this title


This richly illustrated book celebrates the Victoria and Albert Museum's magnificent collection of 19th-century dress. A source of inspiration to many of today's top designers, these colorful items of clothing, seen here in glorious close-up, will delight all lovers of fashion, both historical and contemporary.

Some 150 pieces capture the opulence and variety of this era, from delicate embroidery on neoclassical gowns to the vibrant colors of crinolines and the elegant tailoring of men's coats. Featuring specially commissioned photographs as well as line drawings that demonstrate the underlying structure of each garment-the intricate boning of women's corsets, the patterned silk of men's waistcoats, and more-the book's stunning images and informative text highlight the major themes of 19th-century fashion. A companion to the successful Historical Fashion in Detail and Dress in Detail from Around the World, this unique visual resource reveals the richness of the period in breathtaking detail.
