An alluring, opulent showcase of hundreds of beautiful historic clothing items and accessories.

This lavishly illustrated volume originally appeared in 2010 to celebrate the transfer of the Brooklyn Museum's historic costume collection to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This comprehensive survey highlights more than 200 works selected from this internationally renowned collection, which comprises nearly 25,000 extraordinary women's and men's garments and accessories from the 18th through the 20th century. Among the featured works are sumptuous 19th-century gowns from the House of Worth, exquisite dresses by the great 20th-century French couturiers, iconic Surrealist-based designs of Elsa Schiaparelli, sportswear classics from pioneer American female designers, and the incomparable draped and tailored creations of Charles James, along with exceptional shoes and accessories.
