Thousands of terms associated with apparel worn in the principal countries of Europe appear in this extensive and convenient reference.

Profusely illustrated with over 1,300 detailed line drawings, it offers a useful guide for fashion and cultural historians, writers, designers, movie and theatrical producers, and all others with an interest in the history of fashion.
