Fashion Books to Own: History of Costume by Kohler

"A History of Costume" by Carl Kohler

Anyone who loves fashion or costumes should have a reference library. It's always nice to have something to look through when a costume question comes up. To start at the beginning, this is probably one of the most popular older publications on fashion that still makes sense today. Originally published in 1928, this was revived by Dover Publications in the 60's as a small soft bound book that was inexpensive to own.

What makes this book still valid today when every new book is in full color, are the countless pattern drafts from original historical garments and the photos of museum fashions. Being able to see actual historical pieces is always enlightening, but the costume drafts are super helpful when making original costumes or creating fashions that are derived from historical inspiration.

This book has over 600 photos and pattern drafts, which really packs a punch into the 464 pages of this little (5 1/8" x 7 7/8")volume. Seriously, if you love fashion, this should be on your bookshelf.

Where to find it?
