Official book description:

Vintage Fashion

explores the key designers, silhouettes and shapes, prints and fabrics, and other details that define influential vintage garments from the twentieth century. Providing background on fashion movements as well as offering an awareness of the sewing skills and techniques of the past, the book enables the reader to distinguish original and rare vintage clothing from ready-to-wear and later reproductions. Whether a 1950s Christian Dior dress or a 1970s Emilio Pucci shirt, period pieces by famous designers are greatly sought after today. From an Edwardian lace dress to a Vivienne Westwood mini-crini, this book showcases vintage items in the context of the time in which they were made in order to chart their fashion influence. For those interested in collecting and wearing vintage as well as those interested in looking at past influences for inspiration when developing their own style, this book is an ideal reference and guide. Vintage Fashion includes a shopping guide, which offers pointers on sourcing and caring for vintage pieces, along with a glossary of fashion terms and designers. Archive illustrations, couture fashion drawings, and fashion photography by world-renowned photographers lend background to each decade, while specially commissioned photographs of rare period pieces show the forms and details to look for in authentic vintage garments.

Home to Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, the Bronte sisters, and Martin Luther King, HarperCollins Publishers is one of the world’s leading English-language publishers. Founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, it was acquired in 1987 by News Corp. The worldwide book conglomerate was formed following News Corp’s acquisition of British publishers William Collins & Sons, publishing house to legendary authors Agatha Christie, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis among others. With two centuries of experience, HarperCollins covers an array of genres, including literary and commercial fiction, business books, children’s books, cookbooks, mystery, romance and religious books. Today, HarperCollins is the first publisher to digitize its content and create a global digital warehouse.
