WORN ON THIS DAY

The Clothes That Made History

by Chrisman-Campbell, Kimberly

This stunning visual guide to the clothes worn on monumental occasions throughout history. This "museum in a book" will appeal to not only history and fashion buffs, but also anyone interested in celebrities and socialites, memorabilia, and pop culture.

Beginning on January 1st and ending on December 31st, Worn on This Day looks at garments worn on monumental occasions across centuries, offering capsule fashion histories of everything from space suits to wedding gowns, Olympics uniforms, and armor. It creates thought-provoking juxtapositions, like Wallis Simpson's June wedding and Queen Elizabeth's June coronation, or the battered shoes Marie-Antoinette and a World Trade Center survivor wore to escape certain death, just a few calendar days apart.

In every case there is a newsworthy narrative behind the garment, whether famous and glamorous or anonymous and humble. Prominent figures like Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, and the Duchess of Cambridge are represented alongside ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Worn on This Day presents a revelatory mash-up of styles, stories, and personalities.

Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell is a fashion historian, curator, and journalist. She is the author of the award-winning book Fashion Victims: Dress at the Court of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette.

Quote: Publishers Weekly

To compile this engrossing almanac, fashion historian Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell plucked 365 outfits from the past, one for each day of the year. Featuring everything from Wallis Simpson's wedding gown (June 3) to the tattered clothing worn by a 9/11 survivor, the diverse selection of garments is rife with lessons about the enduring power of what we wear.
