By looking at every facet of fashion, this 5 DVD series offers an easy visual presentation to the history of the art and style of dressing.

From the elegant era of Roman togas to miniskirts and the current "Porno-Chic" style, the series offers a voyage through time by looking at how the evolution of fashion mirrors religious, cultural and political trends. Using spectacularly reconstructed scenes of everyday life, the central theme is how the art of dressing has been changing, and preserving its traditions at the same time. Because fashion never totally goes out of fashion, major fashion designers such as Christian Lacroix, Stefano Pilati, John Galliano explain the five historical periods which inspired them.

Volumes:

1 Roman Elegance (Antiquity)

2 The Bold Medieval Look (Middle Ages)

3 Wigs & Fine Lace (16th to 18th century)

4 Revolutions & Trends (19th century)

5 The Anything-Goes Look (20th century)
