Summary
A rare, close-up look at the exquisite, labour-intensive details seen in fine 18th century clothing. This book reveals sharp pleats, high collars, gleaming pastes, colourful beads, elaborate buttons, and intricate lacework that make up some of the garments in the Victoria and Albert Museum's extensive fashion collection. With an authoritative text, exquisite colour photography of garment details, and line drawings and photographs showing the complete construction of each piece, the reader has the unique opportunity to examine up close historical clothing that is often too fragile to be on display. It is an inspirational resource for students, collectors, designers, and anyone who is fascinated by fashion and costume
