Format: Paperback
I used this book extensivley when I was costuming. It is clear, concise and brilliantly illustrated. I cannot say enough good about this book whether you are a designer of any ilk or simply interested in a history of fashion you must own this. I am ecstatic that I can finally buy my own copy!

A great guide for any costumier who desires to compliment a historical outfit. It should be in anyone's collection of fashion books.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Chrijeff VINE VOICE on September 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
This was the first of Wilcox's trilogy of specialized "mode" titles (the others, The Mode in Footwear: A Historical Survey with 53 Plates (Dover Fashion and Costumes) and The Mode in Furs: A Historical Survey with 680 Illustrations (Dover Fashion and Costumes), have also been reprinted by Dover in a uniform edition), and its 24 chapters brim (no pun intended) with headgear and hairdos from Ancient Egypt to 1959. Crowns and wigs, turbans and veils, helmets, hairpins, ecclesiastical items, Near Eastern turbans and tarbooshes, caps and circlets, hoods and liripipes, escoffions and hennins, berets and bonnets, hats of every shape and brim width, and a wide variety of coiffures are covered, from the simple to the absurdly ornate (like the 1780's Gainsborough shown on the front cover), for men, women, and children. Wilcox's lovely line drawings amplify her text to perfection. No costume maven can afford not to own this set.
