Description - Beads in Fashion 1900-2000 by Leslie Pina

Beads have been a fascinating method for embellishing fashion since ancient cultures sought personal adornment. The twentieth century has seen some of the most innovative, colourful, and wonderful uses for beading as an enhancement in apparel, and, recently, beads have come into fashion as never before. Both vintage and recent costume are desirable as much, if not more, for their beading as for the overall design. This lavishly illustrated book includes chapters on the history, techniques, preservation, and collecting of beads in the world of fashion. With 534 beautiful colour photos, a detailed text, captions, value guide, index, and bibliography, it is the first to cover both vintage and recent costume and accessories in one volume. With clothing by designers, ranging from Fortuny and Mackie to unknowns, this volume will delight anyone in the field of fashion.
