This updated and expanded edition of "The Fairchild Dictionary of Fashion" defines more than 15,000 fashion terms, including apparel and accessory items and their components, relevant fashion business terms, and textile and historical elements that relate to contemporary fashion. The terms are organized into 51 categories that cover such areas as active wear, blouses and tops, clothing construction details and footwear. In addition, the inclusion of pronunciation guides for foreign words, alphabetical page tabs and the cross-referencing of the categories to the alphabetical listing make this reference text easy to use. New illustrations and labelled "anatomical" drawings capture the details of fashion and show how the parts of fashion items fit together.
