A Fashion Dictionary with Context and History

Lately, I’ve been researching and collecting sources of fashion terminology, like dictionaries, but rather pictionaries because it’s easier to get what fashion items and details are by looking at them than reading a description of them.

Then I found out about the issuu.com site and the free books available there. Naturally, I went looking for fashion dictionaries of sorts, and I had no trouble finding some. Now I’m sharing, but by means of testing to see how they embed in WordPress with just a link. It works beautifully, as you can see below!

Among the gems I found is a dictionary that gave history and context to a lot of terms, rather than just a picture or description of what it is. I can find lots of sources for the latter, from infographics like on my Fashion Dictionary Pinterest board, to some books below. However, to fully appreciate a lot of things, knowing its history and background helps, and this first book below is wonderful! Enjoy!

Just a note. As you click on these books below, if you view them at full screen, just hit the Esc key to get back to regular screen.
