There is also information on fashion, construction and other techniques used throughout history and information on businesses used to supply the flowers, feathers and specialty items used so many years ago (some of which are still in business today). At the end of the book is a glossary of terms relating to the industry.
For anyone even peripherally interested in clothing/fashion, this is a wonderful read. The only disappointment was the photo of Karl Lagerfeld's wedding dress, which was the inspiration for the Manus x Machina Exhibit. In person it was spectacular - the embroidery on the train was exquisite - I do not believe the photo in the book did it justice, and I would have liked a close-up of the embroidery. But, then again, perhaps it is impossible to capture Karl Lagerfeld's genius in a photo!
Beware of defective copies. My first copy has pages printed out of order (page 125 printed both at 125 and instead of 163).
Ordered a replacement copy from Amazon and it's the same. I guess the entire run of books is defective.
