Concise Couture: A guidebook to Edwardian style 20. Juli 2014
Von Denise Morales - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Succinct yet thorough is this brilliant evocation of the Edwardian era through the prism of the extravagant couture of the first 15 years of the 20th century. From the deliciously frou-frou fashions of the first decade to the sleeker styles that replaced them as the First World War approached, Daniel Milford-Cottam utilizes fresh research and fascinating images to tell the story of the evolution of women's wear during this critical period of social and political change. For such a slim volume, the author offers an amazingly comprehensive analysis of the epoch, paying special attention to the work of leading designers Lucile, Poiret and Paquin as well as to the innovative contributions of other, now-forgotten couturiers, such as Margaine-Lacroix. The book's writing is crisp, the documentation sound and the illustrations stunning. For the seasoned connoisseur or the Downton Abbey-loving enthusiast, Edwardian Fashion is an ideal handbook of the trends that revolutionized women's lives a century ago.

A Valuable Resource 12. Juni 2014
Von Tamela Mccann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Edwardian Fashion, a slim book that traverses the female and male fashions from roughly 1900-1915, provides a good deal of information despite its size. It is richly illustrated with both actual photographs and artists’ renderings, and we are able to gain a sense of women beginning to escape the confines of traditional dress and moving forward into less restrictive wear. As it focuses on upper-class fashion, we are shown the gorgeous details of the dresses and even given a glimpse into the parties that were thrown for women to select styles worn by models. Gentlemen are also discussed, with the differences given for suits explained and examples also illustrated. This book is a must- read for those who are writers of the era or are simply fascinated, as I am, by the gorgeous designs of the age.

Thank you to the Historical Novel Society for providing a copy of the book for an honest review.

Small book, good for the novice 9. September 2014
Von Millinery Modiste - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read the entire book in 30 minutes total reading time. While some of the the information that was in this slim small book was worthwhile and well written, the book was much smaller and thinner than I had anticipated, and the extremely small print was impossible to read without a magnifying glass. The author's writing aside, the ink had a very strong and unpleasant chemical odor that made the book unable for me to read for more than a few minutes at a time. This is not a comment on the author and his knowledge, which is well written and some of it was very informative, some of it was basic known facts on the fashions of the time. I was a bit disappointed in the amount of text, although what is in here is useful and well written. A good book for the beginner.
