The Fashion Design Resource
Tracy Fitzgerald and Alison Taylor - All books by this author

The study of the dress can reveal a wealth of information that can epitomize an era and provide insight into the historical, social, and cultural context of the time. Here, in this comprehensive library of 1,000 garments, the authors explore and document all aspects of the dress, from its evolution and impact on the fashion industry to its ability to move from functional garment to art form. A directory of dresses is organized by style, with variations for each. Cut, construction, embellishments, proportion, symmetry, volume and more are reviewed. Explored varieties include:
  • Day Dress
  • Shift Dress
  • Shirtdress
  • Pinafore
  • Sundress
  • Knit Dress
  • Coatdress
  • Cultural Influences
  • Special Occasion
With a glossary of terms and more than 1,000 stunning full-color illustrations, 1,000 Dresses: The Fashion Design Resource is a veritable dress bible. It is a must-have resource for anyone who is passionate about fashion.
