    The Complete Fashion Sourcebook

    2,000 Illustrations Charting 20th-Century Fashion

    John Peacock

    ISBN 9780500512760

    27.90 x 20.30 cm

    PLC (no jacket)


    With over 2000 illustrations

    First published 2005

    A bumper edition of John Peacock's renowned costume drawings, charting the development of women's and men's clothing from the 1920s onwards.

    This beautifully illustrated, easy-reference volume features over 2,100 meticulous illustrations that record in fascinating detail the ways in which fashion has changed year by year, decade by decade, from the boyish silhouette of the 1920s right through to the structured ‘power dressing' of the 1980s.

    Day wear, evening dress, sports and leisure wear, accessories, underwear and wedding wear are all portrayed, accompanied by complete descriptions of colour, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fastening, buttons and belts.

    The reference section includes a chart that summarizes the evolution of fashion and garment-shapes through the decades, as well as biographies of the outstanding designers of each era.

    The Complete Fashion Sourcebook will be indispensable to all fashion enthusiasts, historians and collectors, and will be an invaluable sourcebook for any designer or student working in the performing arts.
