The Encyclopaedia of Fashion: From the 1840 to the 1980s



Identifies prominent fashion photographers and designers, describes fabrics, articles of clothing, and fashion styles, and defines terms related to fabric and clothing design and construction. O'Hara defines fashion broadly, and her knowledgeable book includes biographies of trend setters, ranging from Madame Recamier to Madonna, as well as illustrators, manufacturers, retailers, and, of course, designers.
