Fashion Plates: 150 Years of Style

$22.00

Description

A sumptuously illustrated, encyclopedic chronicle of style and its trends, from the 18th to the early 20th century

Prior to the discovery of photography, European and American magazines used colorful prints to depict the up to date fashion trends.  These illustrations, referred to as “fashion plates,” conveyed the state-of-the-art styles embraced by the rage-conscious elite and proved inspirational to the upwardly mobile. This lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive survey of 200 color plates from publications dating from 1778 to the early 20th century, accompanied by authoritative and fascinating texts.  Organized chronologically and featuring both men’s and women’s garments, these full of life and colorful vignettes now not only are beautiful, but in addition deftly illustrate the evolution of style through the years.
