This blog was founded by Mariana Aiex de Mattos in response to the study of the Brazilian and the original American version of the book “Fashion Encyclopedia” by Georgina O’Hara Callan, and it’s edited and codirected by Carolina Aiex de Mattos.
The posts are based on information taken from both versions of Callan’s book and also on internet research, so the number of sources for each one varies according to the entry. For a more complete research, it is suggested 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 none of the versions of the book cover.
We are currently in the process of improving the letter A entries, as well as other areas of the site, in order to provide better quality work to our readers and customers.
This blog is a translated version of the original Brazilian one and goes according to the Portuguese alphabetical order. The Brazilian version can be accessed via the site: http://www.amodaresumida.com
We provide, at the end of each post, a link to its Portuguese translation and to the blog’s Pinterest folder, where several images are gathered.
