Clothes define people. A person's clothing, whether it's a sari, kimono, or business suit, is an essential key to his or her culture, class, personality, or even religion. The Kyoto Costume Institute recognizes the importance of understanding clothing sociologically, historically, and artistically. Founded in 1978, the KCI holds one of the world's most extensive clothing collections and has curated many exhibitions worldwide. With an emphasis on Western women's clothing, the KCI has amassed a wide range of historical garments, underwear, shoes, and fashion accessories dating from the 18th century to the present day. Showcasing a vast selection of skilled photographs from the Institute's archives, depicting the clothing expertly displayed and arranged on custom-made mannequins, Fashion is a fascinating excursion through the last three centuries of clothing trends.

From a rare treasure such as a 17th century iron corset with embroidered bodice to modern-day outfits by such designers as Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein, the collection provides an extensive overview of the evolution of women's fashion. The KCI believes that "clothing is an essential manifestation of our very being" and their passion and dedication positively radiate from every page of this book. It offers an opportunity to see how our ancestors dressed, to consider the amazing accomplishments of contemporary fashion, and to imagine how our descendants may dress in the distant future as clothing design continues on its tireless evolutionary path.

I am thrilled with this book! It is mostly a photo survey of the superb collection of the Kyoto Institutes European and American clothing. The fashion spans 200 years of masterful works by both couture designers and unknown artisans. There is more focus on high fashion and women's wear. There are some 18th century pieces of men's wear. The photography is high quality and all full color. The dresses are displayed with full accessories on bisque white mannequins that are styled specifically to each time period. The mannequins also have wigs styled appropriately, also done in an unobtrusive white, altogether giving a well rounded representation of each periods unique composition. Not only are there full page photos of whole garments, but often they include different angles, close-ups, interiors, and some construction details. There is supporting written material at the beginning of the chapters. There is a particular focus on indicating how western fashion adopted designs, fabrics or styles indigenous to Japan. It is a unique perspective to read commentary written by a different culture about my own culture. This book is a superb publication. I haven't even scratched the surface of what it includes. I should also note, that the fashions represented in the 1960's to the 1990's tend to be less relevant for actual wear, and more for art. For example, the paper "Campbell's Soup" dress inspired by Andy Warhol. But for the early 1960's and all the previous decades of fashion I don't think you will be disappointed. I also own "Fashion in Detail" by Avril Hart and Susan North, and I found the Kyoto book to be far superior.

There are some amazing pictures in this book. As an artist, its nice to have a book that holds so many real life photos of older attire and fashion.

The book was in excellent condition and just per description the sleeve was a bet rough.

Luckily, I had a sleeve left over from where someone took my first copy of this book, lol.

Thank you!

Can't review this because I purchased it as a gift for someone else, who wants the book so it must be good.
If you are intrigued about the history of fashion then this is a must have book for your collection. The photos are just absolutely gorgeous.
