Summary

Ethnic Dress explores the idea of clothing as an expression of cultural identity. Through 500 full-color photographs and a well-researched text, the volume examines both common influences on regional costumes and the particular social and religious factors that shaped the dress of individual nations and peoples.

Whether discussing the polar anorak or the Mexican serape, Ethnic Dress documents the social history behind each costume, including background information on its design, construction, and use. The volume also looks at decorative details such as beadwork and embroidery that adorn specific regional garments.

The first full-color sourcebook to focus on garments across the globe, Ethnic Dress provides an invaluable guide to world culture and international design.
