There's no escaping fashion. Everyone wears clothes, and that means making choices, always raising the same practical, strategic, political, or entirely irrational question: What should I put on? In this guide, Karin Schacknat has found a new, comprehensive way to illustrate the developments in European clothing and apparel-related behaviour from antiquity to the beginning of the 21st century. From the toga to Dolce & Gabbana, from the 17th century lace collar to Iris van Herpen. So much of what's gone out of fashion has come back in. The book's many images of historical clothing are enhanced by recent illustrations, film stills, and fashion photos featuring current styles, making this a vast treasure trove of contemporary fashion design ideas.
