Overview

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, colorful, 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 color 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.

Editorial Reviews

Bead and Button Magazine
Since this is one of Schiffer's collector's books, you'll find values on most of the hundreds of beautiful color photos of beaded garments, garment details and accessories (including shoes). The introductory information, particularly historical, general technique (there are no how-to directions), and care is interesting.

But the real reason to own this book is he hundreds of ideas you'll get every time you look at the pictures. Have you dreamed of embroidering on lace with beads and sequins? You'll find several dozen examples ranging from relatively simple to amazing.
