Editorial Reviews

Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art during the first quarter of 1995. The authors (both curators at The Costume Institute) explore the West's fascination with ideas and motifs from the various Easts, and demonstrate the expression of that fascination in Western fabrics and clothing from the 18th century to the present. The apparel is sumptuous, and gorgeously presented in color photos. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
