The perfect engagement gift! Here’s a collection of more than 300 images, documenting over a century of bridal fashions from the Western world. Find details about everything that went into preparing a bride for her walk down the aisle — from the tiara on her head to the toe of her shoe — and, of course, the all-important wedding dress.
The illustrations and photographs within cover eleven and a half decades between 1832 and 1947. They’re presented chronologically so you can easily find a specific era, or simply browse the gowns, veils, hairstyles and bouquets to see how fashions changed through the years.
Along with the images from vintage magazines and newspapers, we have included many of the descriptions originally published alongside them — including tips on fabrics, cuts, colors, trim, embellishments and accessories. With that insight, you can understand the trends behind the styles, and exactly what went into making each wedding dress design and bridal ensemble — meaning you can even try to recreate your favorite classic looks.
Printed in a charming square format (8-1/2 inches wide and tall) with a silky matte finish cover,Something Old: Vintage Wedding Dress Fashion Look Book is a great gift for the newly-engaged, the soon-to-be-married, fans of vintage styles, history buffs, antique collectors and followers of fashion.
