The Little Dictionary of Fashion is an interesting period piece. Some things are still valid to our sense of modern dress and other things are charming but very dated. When you read this book you should take into consideration the time and values of the day.
This is such a sweet little book! I saw it first at Anthropologie and went looking for it online and found it much cheaper on Amazon. There are a lot of fun old pictures of Dior fashion. It is a dictionary of fashion according to Dior, and he has such a fun and wonderful point of view. I have quoted many of his sayings in this book to my sisters!
I bought this little book for my daughter who is a fashion designer and loves all things vintage. Written sometime in the '50's, it's a treasure to read and see how far we women have come as regards our "fashion rules."
