From the emblematic designs of Madame Gres to Isadora Duncan's dance costumes and the "avant-garde" gowns of Yves Saint Laurent, the Graeco-Roman classical tradition of dress has clearly inspired and influenced the worlds of art and fashion. This illustrated volume explores the continually evolving influence of classical dress through the ages, presenting a historical survey of this theme. Featured works include paintings, photographs, sculpture and decorative objects from Greek and Roman times to the early 21st century as well as garments dating from the 18th century and more recent creations by designers such as Tom Ford of Gucci and Issey Miyake.
