Clothes of the Modern Worldlooks at how fashions have changed in the last 200 years, as increasing industrialization has brought a greater range of garments and new fabrics, and traces the development of bothhaute coutureand street style. Stunning detailed artwork on every page recreates clothes from Victorian crinolines and frock coats to miniskirts and sportswear.
