Inläggav Jessi » 8 november 2005, 23:07

Hi all,
I wonder if someone can help me to find good information about Fashion history, from 1400 centuries up to now. Specalized into different classes. And information about the Corsets?
I would prefer to find all the info over the internet so if you know some good webside?
I can get the information in both Swedish and English.

Thank you.

You will find books about fashion history in a library. Please be more specific.

As you read Swedish you should try these topics about corsets: ... PIC_ID=382 ... IC_ID=1095 ... IC_ID=1708 ... IC_ID=2334

Christopher Breward discusses changes in fashion, class and identity from the 14th century to the present in "The Culture of Fashion". I seem to recall that he talks about the trickle down theory there as well. It's thoroughly theoretical book, and personally I don't agree with some of his conclusions, but it's still an interesting read.

I am personally very fond of Malcolm Barnard's <i>Fashion as communication</i> as an introduction to many of the theories concerning fashion and society. I don't buy his thoughts about fashion in eeh middle ages, but that really is just half a page and he can be excused because a) it really isn't his research period b) it isn't in any way the scope of the book.
