Description

Fashion lovers and young historians can discover the amazing stories behind the clothes we wear as we examine the amazing peculiarities of international fashions, past and present. Readers will learn about the often ridiculous clothes our ancestors wore such as tighter than tight herringbone corsets or posing tricorne hats, as well as a nod to equally ridiculous fashion influences and personalities of the present day.
