Vintage Details is a stunning collection of more than 600 beautifully photographed details from previously unseen 20th-century vintage clothing.
The images are arranged by detail: necklines; collars; sleeves; cuffs; pockets; fastenings and buttonholes; hems, darts, stitching and fitting devices; pleats, frills and flounces; embellishment; surface texture and print. Inner construction shots will also be included, along with images of the full garments providing context for the details shown.
