It is a unique reference encyclopedia for the study of apparel, where you can find everything from Eskimo costumes to examples of French haute couture. Undoubtedly a work of obligatory reading and observation for students, illustrators, designers, historians and anyone interested in the world of fashion and styling.
This study was originally published in France at the end of the nineteenth century, thus being the largest and deepest study published up to the time. In the six volumes that make up it addresses the universal history of dress and fashion from the Ancient Age to the late nineteenth century. Enriched with exquisite and meticulous coloured illustrations of Racinet.
