The textiles, tailoring, and trimmings all work together in the creation of the finest pieces. Drawing on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s internationally known fashion collection, this book tells the story in words and pictures of fashion’s aesthetic and technical development from the Age of Enlightenment to World War I, a period when fashionable dress underwent sweeping changes. Many examples of men’s, women’s, and children’s garments are featured here, including a rare 1790s man’s vest designed to promote sympathy with the French Revolution; a 1845 black satin gown from the royal court of Portugal heavily embroidered with gold; and an 1891 evening mantle with silk embroidery, glass beads, and ostrich feathers designed by French couturier mile Pingat. A resource for anyone interested in the evolution of fashion, this illustrated book provides a visual history of the changes that occurred in fashionable dress spanning a period of more than two hundred years.
