To complement the detailed text, the book includes more than 250 gorgeous, full-color photographs and illustrations showcasing quality fabrics, innovative techniques, important silhouettes and colors, and exquisite workmanship. As a bonus, a "Key Looks" feature in every chapter provides an at-a-glance view of the important shapes, colors, and details that defined each era. Finally, a shopping guide, tips on care, glossaries on fashion terms, and a list of the century's most collectable and important designers round out this invaluable guide.
