Cult of Chiffon
Beskrivelse: 'The subject of woman, that is to say, the modern woman, with her varying instincts, pursuits, and peculiarities alone would fill many large volumes. I feel bound, therefore, to confine myself to the discussion of one particular side of her nature, one for which personally I have most sympathy, and one which perhaps can best be described by the epithet 'womanly.''Originally published in 1902, this extremely rare volume offers a remarkable snapshot of the fashionable Edwardian woman. The author — fashion editor for The Lady's Realm, a monthly London magazine for more 'enlightened' readers — offers rich counsel on how to cultivate charm and social standing through the subtle art of dress. Illustrated fashion tips feature a wide range of advice on corsets, petticoats, hats, jewelry, footwear, accessories, and more, with chapters on 'The All-Important Question of Colour,' 'Hats Sublime and Ridiculous,' 'The Revival of Fashions of the Past,' and 'The Aggressiveness of the Smart Woman.' A selection of vintage advertisements for London-area fashion shops is also included.
