Description:
The Dress Detective is the first practical guide to analysing fashion objects.

Previously only obtainable from first-hand experience in a museum or archive, garment research methods and processes are de-mystified, allowing readers to uncover important clues about items of dress and make informed conclusions...Every stain or tear tells a story about the wearer and each embroidered stitch speaks volumes of the culture and society during the time it was made. This accessible book provides readers with the tools to uncover the hidden stories behind some of the most iconic historical garments and accessories from across the globe..

This beautifully illustrated guide includes clear and concise overviews of key theories of object analysis, and a broad variety of case studies - from a mid-19th century corset to a 2004 Kenzo jacket - explain how to put that theory into practice. Featuring checklists and invaluable tips, this book will give any budding fashion historian, curator or researcher the knowledge and confidence to analyse the material in front of them effectively.
