The Pimlico Companion to Fashion by Colin McDowell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From "Ovid" to "Malcolm X", "The Ladies Magazine" to 'Punch", Mary Wollstone-craft to Anita Loos, William Hazlitt to D. H. Lawrence, Thomas Carlyle to Brett Easton Ellis, Fanny Burney to Jean Genet, Virginia Woolf to Milan Kundera, dress has stimulated comments at all levels - whether witty, ironic, moralistic, critical or simply sensual. Using letters, journals and memoirs, as well as novels, poetry and plays, and covering over four hundred years of writing, including British, Irish, American and European literature, "The Pimlico Companion to Fashion" is surely the ultimate collection about dress.
