A former columnist/illustrator for Ancestry Magazine, Betty Kreisel Shubert has published this ground breaking book on how, why, and when vintage fashions evolved. The book includes over 700 of the author’s own sequential illustrations that reveal the style clues that date clothes worn by men, women, and children in the 19th through 20th centuries and beyond. Out of Style has testimonials from famous genealogists, university professors of theatre and Disneyland designers. In addition, the prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising has bought Out of Style for the libraries on all their campuses. This validates its importance as a history of fashion book.
