Notes

First edition. Well-illustrated survey of twentieth-century fashion by the then honorary president of the Union française des Arts du Costume, here in a somewhat bizarre if fitting binding. "Fashion holds no secrets for Bruno du Roselle, long-time delegate to the French Federation for women's prêt-à-porter. From the outset the present work puts the art of dressing back in its economic and psychosociological contexts, in Paris of course, but also in London, New York, even Beijing and Bangui" (From contemporary review in Le Monde, 22/04/1981, our translation).
