There is an old English saying: "Manners maketh man." One can also claim that "accessories maketh clothes." This new book sets out to demonstrate the variety and beauty of fashion accessories during the hundred-year period beginning in 1840. Fashion has always reflected the social, sexual, and economic spirit of its age. Clothing and accessories also express the status, aspirations, and wealth of the wearer._x000D_Most books on fashion tend to divide clothing and accessories into decades. This book seeks find the natural shifts from one fashion theme to another. The accessories are shown with a full-length, dressed figure and explanatory text for context. This is an invaluable book for collectors, fashion historians, designers, and theatrical costumers. AUTHOR: London-based Geoffrey Warren holds England's National Diploma in Design and worked for thirty years as art editor of several women's magazines, including British Vogue. He bought his first historical costume book when he was 12 and created many costumes during his teenage years. He is now a full-time writer and illustrator.
