Our names are Carolina and Mariana Aiex de Mattos, we created this blog in response to our study of the Brazilian version of the book “Fashion Encyclopedia” by Georgina O’Hara Callan. On the blog, we provide a text based on the information from the book and on an internet research, in which we provide an overview of each entry. As said, the adjacent research is done on the internet and therefore the number of sources varies according to each entry. For a more complete research, we suggest that the reader delve deeper into the topic.
Throughout the study, we realized that in the future it will be necessary to introduce original entries, which unfortunately the book does not cover.
This blog is a translated version of the Brazilian one, the original, and goes according to the Portuguese alphabetical order. The Brazilian version can be accessed via the site: http://www.amodaresumida.com
We post weekly, and each post has its own smaller version on Instagram.
We provide, at the end of each post, a link to the Portuguese translation and to the blog’s Pinterest folder, where several images about the post are gathered.
