9780765683007: World Clothing and Fashion: An Encyclopedia of History, Culture, and Social Influence

Taking a global, multicultural, social, and economic perspective, this work explores the diverse and colourful history of human attire. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, articles cover the evolution of clothing utility, style, production, and commerce, including accessories (shoes, hats, gloves, handbags, and jewellery) for men, women, and children.

Dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, religious observances, rites of passages, and other human needs and purposes - from hunting and warfare to sports and space exploration - are examined in depth and detail. Fashion and design trends in diverse historical periods, regions and countries, and social and ethnic groups constitute a major area of coverage, as does the evolution of materials (from animal fur to textiles to synthetic fabrics) and production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design). Dress as a reflection of social status, intellectual and artistic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing are recurring themes. Influential figures and institutions in fashion design, industry and manufacturing, retail sales, production technologies, and related fields are also covered.

Review:

"This set is suitable for those in middle school through undergraduate studies to gain an understanding of clothing and fashion through the lenses of history, culture, and social influence. The title not only looks at dress as a way to cover the body, or not cover it, but also how clothing is a way to trace history of groups through their costuming habits. ... Of great use to students and amateur researchers is a topic finder, which organizes the entries into categories ... The title also examines historical periods and styles worldwide and local styles, both with a strong emphasis on the United States and England. This work will be useful to students creating reports on cultures, geographies, costuming for theater, advertising, biographies of subjects such as Amelia Bloomer and Vera Wang, and clothing manufacturing." --Library Journal

"The entries are survey articles that offer historical background and relevant facts all written in a straightforward and accessible style. Value-added features include a glossary of 82 terms as well as a chronology of significant events, a collected bibliography, and a 120-page general index. It is a reference work that high school students and lower-division undergraduates will find useful. Interested public library patrons will also find it a helpful resource. World Clothing and Fashion provides a reliable starting point for students working on research papers as well as a resource of informed background information for the interested lay reader." --Against the Grain

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up—This set not only examines clothing and fashion as a way to cover, or not cover, the body, but also how dress is a way to trace the history of groups through their costuming habits. Of great use to students and amateur researchers is the topic finder that organizes the entries according to subjects such as accessories and adornments; art and media; biographies; clothing types (functions, purposes, groups); materials; historical periods and styles around the world, with a focus on the United States and England; holiday and event costumes; the creation and care of clothing; merchandising and commerce; local styles, again with a strong emphasis on the United States and England; techniques and trades/professions; and trends and movements. The 313 major entries offer basic overviews of people, groups, materials, and meanings of clothing throughout time, with several photographs included as well. Each entry is organized with subheadings, and includes cross references and suggestions for further reading. This work will be useful to students creating reports on cultures, geographies, costuming for theater, advertising, biographies of subjects such as Amelia Bloomer and Vera Wang, and manufacturing of clothing.—Sara Marcus, Queensborough Community College Library, Bayside, NY
