If you enjoyed the Fashion Gallery at Gunnersbury Park Museum, you may find interest in this book which reappraises the role of fashion and its place in society by Valerie Cumming. The book introduces the reader to the ways fashionable dress has been defined and studied since the late 17th century, considering the theories that surround the subject, the assembling and use of collections of fashion and textiles, the significance of dress and art, the tension between uniformity of appearance and disguise, and the purpose of theatrical costume.
