Description

A new edition of the original Journal des Dames et des Modes 1797-1839 which was the world's first "fashion magazine." Fashion is a sign-system of cultural and historical changes. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values, home life and politics have all contributed to lifestyle trends which influence the clothes we wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period. Through a rich selection of the famous fine color plates of the first fashion magazine, this book shows the growing interest in fashion, style, and manners of the late French Revolution, the Consulate, the Empire, and the early Bourbon restoration and helps the readers in understanding a crucial era. The subjects are divided by themes, and each chapter is introduced by a short text. A book for fans of the history of costume and fashion.show more
