Description

This work contains details about party clothes ranging from the ceremonial robes of the ancient Chinese and the royal regalia of Egyptian pharaohs, to ballgowns of the Victorian era and the "flapper" dresses of the 1920s; from wedding dresses around the world, to the designer-evening wear of Dior and Chanel; from traditional tribal outfits worn on special occasions, to prom dresses and dinner jackets. How did different styles develop? What are the traditions behind certain items of celebratory clothing? How have fashion fads or religion dictated the clothes we wear for important occasions? It takes a comprehensive look at the history of party clothes!show more
