An illustrated history of the bizarre and the beautiful.
From outrageously tall wigs worn by persons of prominence in the 18th century to the glitter-covered platform boots of the 1970s, the history of fashion is filled with weird and wonderful trends – some just flashes in the pan, others enduring and evolving over the years.
Be entertained by fads and styles that were heralded as delightful innovations in their time, but with the benefit of hindsight, appear wacky, foolish, grotesque or downright dangerous!
A feast of follies for fashion lovers of any age to pore over and wonder at.
