Format: Hardcover
This is an exhibition catalogue for the Metropolitan Museum of Art costume institute. It chronicles the influence the fashions of ancient Greece and Rome has had in more modern times on women's costume.
Printed on a very nice matt paper (even for photos) it contrasts examples of ancient art such as statues and painted vases with the work of later fashion designers. We get examples of the work of Halston, Madame Gres, Prada, Liberty, Dior and Mariano Fortuny just to name a few. This book is as much a photographic essay as is it is an exhibition catalogue. It has been produced in an elegant style with full page photos one side and text on the other giving it a clean and uncluttered feel.
Recommended if you have any interest in ancient costume and its impact on later fashion design.

This has always been a very exotic style of garment that is timeless. I was expecting more of the design aspect of the garment
than looking at vases.
