Encyclopedia of clothing and fashion
"Steele, director of the Fashion Institute of Technology Museum, has crafted, with the help of 325 contributors, an authoritative introduction to fashion, the industry, and the issues that hve defined the field. Some 640 articles describe the colorful facets of couture and textiles, from fabrics of chintz, corduroy, and feathers to such garb as aprons, bikinis, and prison dress. There are color plates and nearly 600 black-and-white illustrations. Back matter includes a comprehensive index, a timeline, and a topical outline."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005.

Encyclopedia of clothing and fashionUser Review - Book Verdict
Edited by Steele (Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body, and Culture ) and with contributions from some 300 reputable academics, journalists, and fashion industry professionals, this impressive reference work surveys the relationship between culture and fashion through alphabetically arranged articles. The 640 articles, each appended with a brief but useful bibliography, fall into three broad but overlapping categories: the history of clothing and textiles, great fashion houses and trends, and cultural/ethnic aspects of dress. As is usual in works of such scope, topics receive uneven treatment. In line with current interests, there are several long articles on dress in Muslim countries. On the other hand, rt (Romain de Tirtoff), the Art Deco designer of stage sets and costumes, receives only a couple of passing references, while influential cultural critics Marjorie Garber and Peter Gay are only cited in bibliography. These are small complaints, however. Every clothing interest is well represented, and fashion mavens will welcome the many articles on the history of great fashion houses like Dior, Fendi, and Prada. There are also articles covering specific clothing items like corsets, kilts, and eyeglasses. Bottom Line This pricey set is hardly a bargain for smaller systems but is nevertheless recommended for both public and academic libraries owing to its wide appeal. [It is also available as an e-book through Gale Virtual Reference Library (ISBN 0-684-31451-7), which offers added features like cross searching and expanded searching for difficult-to-find materials.--Ed.]--James F.
