Compiled from the world's finest collection of childrenswear comes an incomparable resource for anyone interested in children's fashion.


From Victorian-era Little Lord Fauntleroy suits to World War II air-raid outfits to baby Nike sneakers, this beautifully illustrated compendium follows a gradual shift in children's fashions over the last three hundred years. This highly accessible guide includes specially commissioned photographs of over three hundred garments and a rich selection of line drawings, illustrations from sewing and knitting patterns, catalogues, dolls, fashion plates, paintings, and illustrations from children's books. For an at-a-glance understanding of changes in what has become a booming industry, curator Noreen Marshall offers a detailed introduction and fully illustrated timeline.

Noreen Marshall is the curator of the Dress, Doll, and Childcare Collections at the V&A Museum of Childhood. She has worked on a number of V&A exhibitions, including Stile Liberty, Jolly Hockey Sticks, The Pack Age, and a series of Christmas exhibitions.
