 Hello all!!!

So today I was at work... (I work in a bookstore as my "real job")  And I happened across this book.  Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style

I flipped through it and it is amazing!!!  

Here's the summary from a website...

"Containing everything you need to know about changing fashion and style -- from ancient Egyptian dress to Space Age Fashion and Grunge -- and information on icons like Marie Antoinette, Clara Bow, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Alexander McQueen, Fashion catalogs the history of what people wear, revealing how Western fashion has been influenced by design from around the world and celebrating costume and haute couture."

It's 450 pages of pictures and sketches and historical references...  

So if you're a costumer and you need a quick glance guide of the the overall styles and trends of a certain year.... this book nails it.  Seriously, you just pick a year and flip to those pages and you'll see what was in style then.  There's also plenty of pictures not just of women's but men's fashion -- which is REALLY hard to find.  

The only drawback is that is seems to be based mostly on American and European fashion... so if you're looking for specific regions during certain eras... you might have a little trouble...

But, yeah.. This book is going on my Christmas List because I feel like I need to have it.

Here's a link to the book....


They have it listed at 31.00 USD when it retails for 50... 

So check it out...
