A detailed look at the styles and fabrics of the Edwardian clothes worn by the passengers on Titanic, from the finery of first class to the functional costumes of the crew. The author explains how their clothes were made, bought, kept and cared for, and what was worn by whom, from corsets and peignoirs to top coats and furs. The major designers and their styles are discussed, and the way people of more modest means adapted or copied their styles.
Stories of selected individuals, from personal reminiscences or witness accounts, are woven lightly into the narrative, creating a realistic impression of what it felt like to be among the men and women who set sail on the newly built ship.
