Description
The tradition of costuming is more than just what we do on Halloween! Eyewitness Costume offers an original look at the colorful history of clothes and fashion, from the practical to the not-so-practical. Page after page of richly detailed pictures depict the original clothes, accessories, and ornaments worn by real-life men, women, and children throughout history to modern times. See brooches and hairpins worn by Roman women, the opulence of Renaissance clothes and jewels, 17th-century fans, gloves and bags, a hippie father and son, Queen Victoria's stockings, and a Viking shoe. Learn what false fat bellies were stuffed with, how Romans folded their togas, how the discovery of the New World changed European costume, and when starch was first used to stiffen fabric. Discover how textiles have affected fashion, what a farthingale was used for, what the first bathing suits looked like, why women used to wear corsets, and much, much more. The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures.
