About

Overview

This interdisciplinary reference brings a fresh perspective to the diverse and colorful global history of human attire. The interdisciplinary approach illuminates dress as a reflection of social status, aesthetic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, more than 300 articles cover the evolution of clothing styles in diverse historical periods, regions, and countries, as well as the diversification of materials (from animal furs and textiles to synthetic fabrics), production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design), and commerce (from bartering to global retail). Finally, dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, rites of passage, and other human activities—from hunting and warfare to sports competition and space exploration—are examined in detail. Entries on influential designers, manufacturers, and other prominent figures associated with the fashion industry complete the coverage of a subject that has affected the everyday lives of people around the world throughout history.
