Product Details

Praise

A groundbreaking investigation [in which] the scope of information and analysis given is impressive. At the same time it is a readable insight into a system which profoundly affected fashion as it did every aspect of life in the Eastern Bloc—a phenomenon from our immediate past and on our doorstep which continues to fascinate.—Selvedge

FashionEast is a beautifully presented and seriously researched attempt to uncover how fashion worked, or didn’t work, in the 72 years of the Soviet Union and the 42 years of the Eastern Bloc…When Stepanova says in 1923 that ‘the clothing of today must be seen in action,’ we could say too that the history of clothing must also be ‘in action,’ and, as Bartlett reminds us, not merely as a frivolous sideline to main political events, but as an important reflection of them.

ICON (UK)

FashionEast is by far, the best source on the market concerning Communist fashion.

Heather Vaughan, Worn Through

Smartly illustrated, fascinating and provocative.
