Fashion in Detail
Good piece of news ! They reissued Fashion in Detail, a wonderful book on the 17th & 18th-century costumes which gives the opportunity to have a close-up look at the details of several historical costumes from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The pictures are beautiful and completed by very informative explanations on the techniques, fabrics and fashion of the time.
It's an amazing journey into the past, and a great resource for anyone interested in fashion, historical costumes or decorative arts and crafts.
