Fashion: The Whole Story

Thames & Hudson has just published a handsome 576-page volume entitled Fashion: The Whole Story. The ambitious work is a series of short pieces on the history of womenswear and menswear (with a strong bias to the former) from Greco-Roman times.

Fashion The Whole Story 001

I contributed a chapter on English tailoring in the late 19th century,


plus an appreciation of the influence of Edward, Prince of Wales, who became Edward VII on the death of his mother, Queen Victoria, in 1901.DSC02514

My wife Jane Eastoe is also a contributor to this fine book, writing about daytime decorum of the 1950s, the fashion valkyries of the 1980s and second-skin dressing.
