This book illustrates the evolution of the Philippine national dress. It is a journey from the Victorian era, through two world wars, and past the atomic age; from haute couture's birth to its golden age; from colonialism to independence. Along with over two hundred vintage photographs from Philippine, European and American collections, the book also features glossaries, essays, and contemporary photos of period fashion, textiles and jewelry.
