Series: A history of fashion
By Laura Cowan
Take an illustrated journey through 5,000 years of fashion, from Stone-Age furs to flamboyant flounces, corsets and 1970s sequins. Each page features full page illustrations to pore over and information on how styles were developed as each new era defined fashion for itself. This is a book no fashion or history lover should be without.
Laura studied literature at Cambridge and more literature at Trinity College Dublin. This means she’s read a lot of books, which helps when writing them. Before joining Usborne, she taught English in Barcelona for four years, as well as in Dublin and Cambridge. She now lives in East London with some plants and a lot of vintage clothes.
