Jane Ashelford is also the author of The Care of Clothes.From Booklist:
It is perhaps indicative of our uncertainty about and schizophrenic regard for fashion that we understand all too well photographer Cecil Beaton's annoyance at being labeled a "propagandist for frivolity." Drawing from three major costume collections owned by Britain's National Trust, as well as that country's vast scholarly resources, lecturer Ashelford, with the assistance of Andreas von Einsiedel's camera work, draws wondrous word pictures of four centuries of British clothing, mind-sets, and society. What emerges from the scrutiny of 400 years is the historical recognition that clothes no longer make the man; by 1914, master and servant, mistress and maid, could be mistaken by appearances alone. That progression is also documented by literary and artistic currents; analysis of Shakespearean dramas and Holbein portraits, for example, show in a glance various dressing rites and rituals. Fascinating facts will allure readers, as will the incredibly wide range of subjects--children's apparel, the retail trade, wigs, and servant dress, among others. Barbara Jacobs
