Description

From animal furs of prehistory to golden crowns of Ancient Egypt, The Complete Book of Fashion History explores history and culture through the lens of fashion!

Explore world history and culture through the lens of fashion with The Complete Book of Fashion History. Travel through time and learn about the most popular fashion trends in history, from the garb of early humans in pre-history, to the short skirts of flappers and the bell-bottoms of disco.

You'll get the full stories on subjects like why did French aristocrats powder their hair? And why did knights wear so much chain mail? From buttons to zippers and leather sandals to high heels, young fashionistas will learn how fashion is often influenced by what's happening in the world around us.

With colorful, engaging illustrations and fascinating historical facts, this quirky historical reference, geared toward young fashionistas, encourages discussion among children and their parents about different cultures and fashion trends through history.
