Reprint of a volume in which Cosgrove (associate editor of British Vogue) explores the development of fashion from its simple and practical beginnings to the growth of the multibillion dollar global industry that it is today. Spanning about 5,000 years, she examines trends in global cultures and the costumes they adopted, textiles, and trends in footwear, headgear, hair, make-up, and grooming habits of both sexes. Organized by specific time periods from the ancient Egyptians to the present. Extensively illustrated in color. Oversize: 9.75x11.25<">.
