Clothes define people. A person's clothing, whether it's a sari, kimono, or business suit, is an essential key to his or her culture, class, personality, or even religion.

The Kyoto Costume Institute recognizes the importance of understanding clothing sociologically, historically, and artistically.

Founded in 1978, the KCI holds one of the world's most extensive clothing collections and has curated many exhibitions worldwide.

With an emphasis on Western women's clothing, the KCI has amassed a wide range of historical garments, underwear, shoes, and fashion accessories dating from the 18th century to the present day.

Showcasing a vast selection from the Institute's archives of skilled photographs depicting the clothing expertly displayed and arranged on custom-made mannequins, "Fashion History" is a fascinating excursion through the last three centuries of clothing trends.

The KCI believes that "clothing is an essential manifestation of our very being" and their passion and dedication positively radiate from every page of this book.

This special 25th anniversary edition has a chic new format: two volumes packaged in a slipcase.
