Publisher Comments:

Couture: then and now (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) Clothes define people. A person's clothing, whether it's a sari, kimono, or business suit, is an essential key to his or her culture, class, personality, or even religion. The Kyoto Costume Institute recognizes the importance of understanding clothing sociologically, historically, and artistically. Founded in 1978, the KCI holds one of the world's most extensive clothing collections and has curated many exhibitions worldwide. With an emphasis on Western women's clothing, the KCI has amassed a wide range of historical garments, underwear, shoes, and fashion accessories dating from the 18th century to the present day. Showcasing a vast selection from the Institute's archives of skilled photographs depicting the clothing expertly displayed and arranged on custom-made mannequins, Fashion History is a fascinating excursion through the last three centuries of clothing trends.

This book is a must for anyone who loves fashion of the 18th and 19th Century, and for anyone who loves seeing actual photo's of the clothing. (And not just paintings or fashion plates from the period.) The book is filled with full page images of startling detail and is a brilliant reference guide. The clothing is modeled on gray mannequins which show off the shape of the clothing. The photographs are staged well with satisfying visuals of the fabrics. It is a 2 book set: one book focusing on the 18th and one for the 19th. Both books are stunning! A great buy.
