Sarah (sarahreadsroyals) | 20 comments I'm not sure what folder put this but I'll let mods to organize this topic.

I have another question for you all. I'm obsessed with Timeless costumes (especially Emma's Chinatown dress, 😍) and only recently I found myself wondering if there's any good nonfiction book out there that talks about the history of fashion, for both females and males. I may or may not going to recreate some of the costumes... 🙈

Hi Sarah! I'm fascinated by the costumes, too, and the way fashion has evolved. I've been looking for a good book to read - there are lots about specific designers, but I'm more interested in the broad evolution of style. There's one that looks interesting called "How to Read a Dress," by Lydia Edwards. I haven't ordered it yet, but I'd love to read with you if you want to tackle this or another book about the history of fashion!

Gina Weber | 7 comments I’m so glad others are interested in this too. While I have loved and appreciated everything from the Smithsonian reviews, I was kinda disappointed that they did not delve into fashion in the Chinatown episode. I was hoping to learn more about that.

Beth | 15 comments I’m so excited - Mari-An Ceo, the Timeless costume designer, responded to my question about fashion history books on Instagram! She’s going to look through her library to share suggestions for good books we could read. ❤️

Beth, that is so cool!

Sarah, to answer your original question, I bought this book from Barnes & Noble a long time ago - Fashion: A History from the 18th to 20th Century

Sarah (sarahreadsroyals) | 20 comments Hi everyone! I went to the library another day and I found this great book, The Cut of Women's Clothes: 1600-1930. I had only begun to read it but it was very interesting if anyone is interested era between 1600s-1930s. I don't know if it is still in publication since the book is quite very old, way older than me! (Circa 1960s) and I thought you all might be interested as also. :)

That looks like an amazing book - thank you for telling us about it! Sounds like you had a great find, too, since the copies on Amazon are really expensive. I'll keep an eye out for a copy at my library, too!

Magrace Landwehr | 1 comments I took a period costuming class in college that used Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style as a textbook. It was absolutely beautiful to look through! The pictures are just gorgeous, and the examples are wonderful. To this day, it's still one of my favorites to just browse.
