This lavishly illustrated volume comprehensively chronicles the history of the Chinese art of dress. It consists of three parts: the Introduction provides an overview of the evolution of Chinese garb, the main body gives full detail to the topic in nine chapters, namely headpieces, upper garments, lower garments, footwear, hairstyles, facial adornments, jewellery, patterns and fabrication techniques. Each category is presented chronologically from B.C. times through to the fall of the Qing Dynasty in the early twentieth century.
 
This volume is not simply an invaluable classic work for the dedicated researcher of fashion; it doubles as a practical guide for clothing designers in terms of pattern design, colour matching and style sources. This is a sumptuously illustrated album not to be missed by aficionados of the sartorial arts.
