The History of Fashion in France
by

Publisher: Scribner and Welford
ISBN/ASIN: B00085BT7A
Number of pages: 293

Description:
Fashion is the expositor, from the standpoint of costume, of our habits and our social relations; in a word, of everything appertaining to the charm of life. Therefore to write the history of female fashion in France is a more serious task than it might seem to be at the first glance. We must restrict ourselves to the garments worn by women in each succeeding age, and indeed we must confine ourselves to France alone, if we would achieve as complete a picture as possible of the transformations in female dress from the time of the Gauls to the day on which we shall have accomplished our task.
