Bibliography
Index.

“I am delighted to have this book as part of our literature, and highly recommend it to students of costume design in theatre, television or film, theatre studies, performance studies, fashion and textiles, art and architecture, gender studies and cultural studies. It is an invaluable resource that offers an entryway through which designers, directors, performance theorists and historians may tread towards a more comprehensive history and theory of costume, with its infinite manifestations and functions.” (Linda Matheson, Studies in Costume & Performance, Vol. 1 (1), 2016)
