Riassunto: The pursuit of style has prompted centuries of dramatic change in fashion?and author R. Turner Wilcox researched and documented it all in this completely comprehensive volume. A lifelong student of history, costume, and design, she observed decades of fashion innovations from major cities all over the world and served as fashion editor of Women's Wear Daily from 1910 to 1915. Her remarkable Mode series is a definitive reference for anyone with a passion for fashion. From the togas of ancient Rome to the gorgeous gowns of Dior, this lavishly illustrated, thoroughly researched treasury examines men's, women's, and children's clothing ? plus accessories ? from 3000 B.C. to 1958.

A gathering of some of the most distinctive and dramatic styles through the ages, The Mode in Costume is an essential handbook for illustrators, costume designers, and theater students ? and compulsory reading for fashionistas.
