Worn On This Day : The Clothes That Made History, Hardback Book

Worn On This Day : The Clothes That Made History Hardback

Hardback

Description

This stunning visual guide is a journey of discovery through fashion's fascinating history, one day at a time. Beginning on January 1st and ending on December 31st, Worn On This Day looks at garments worn on monumental occasions across centuries, offering capsule fashion histories of everything from space suits to wedding gowns, Olympics uniforms and armour.

It creates thought-provoking juxtapositions, like Wallis Simpson's June wedding and Queen Elizabeth's June coronation, or the battered shoes Marie-Antoinette and a World Trade Center survivor wore to escape certain death, just a few calendar days apart. In every case there is a newsworthy narrative behind the garment, whether famous and glamorous or anonymous and humble.

Prominent figures like Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe and the Duchess of Cambridge are represented alongside ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, Worn On This Day presents a revelatory mash-up of styles, stories and personalities.
