In the end, this might be a case of reality vs. expectation where the reality of this book’s content doesn’t come anywhere near the reader’s expectation; especially when it boasts truckloads of data and enlightenment on the subject within the book’s introduction.

Synopsis

Vintage Details is a stunning collection of over 550 beautifully photographed details from previously unseen 20th-century vintage clothing.

The images are arranged by detail: necklines, collars, sleeves, cuffs, pockets, hems, darts and fitting devices, stitching, fastenings and buttonholes, pleats, frills and flounces, embellishment, texture, and print. Inner construction shots will also be included, along with images of the full garments providing context for the details shown.

Easy to navigate and packed full of inspirational images, this book will become an indispensable reference to vintage detailing for fashion design students and professionals.
