19th Century Fashion in Detail

Regular price £24.95

This richly illustrated book reveals the decorative seams, refined stitching, drapery, corseting and slashing and stamping that make up some of the garments in the V&A's celebrated 19th-century fashion collection.

With an informative text, exquisite colour photography of garment details and line drawings showing the complete construction of each piece, this beautiful book gives the reader a unique opportunity to examine historical clothing that is often too fragile to be on display.

Recommended for students, collectors, designers and anyone who is fascinated by fashion and clothing.
