Classic and modern writings on fashion

Peter McNeil (Editor)
"The serious analysis of clothing and fashion has a long history. The Classic and Modern Writings on Fashion area of the Berg Fashion Library contains seminal writings on fashion, including classic and contemporary essays and primary sources. As a whole they form the foundations of fashion theory and methodology, and are essential for scholarly research in fashion, dress and costume. Essays included in Classic and Modern Writings on Fashion previously appeared in Fashion: Critical and Primary Sources (2009), edited by Peter McNeil."--Bloomsbury Fashion Central
