A fashionable HISTORY
A new series for 11-15 year olds that takes a focused and in-depth look at the development of costume through the ages. The books compare the evolution of clothes, shoes, adornment and accessories, and relate them to changes in social behaviour, lifestyles and taste, from the earliest times to the present day. Complemented by clear photographs and illustrations, each book shows how items developed over time, and highlights how new skills and changes in technology have influenced fashion. A timeline puts each theme into its historical context.
A Fashionable History is the ideal resource for projects in fashion, history, design, design technology, art and history of art.
