In 1759, the Qianlong Emperor of China commissioned a catalog of comprehensive, illustrated regulations for ceremonial garments and accessories worn by the members of the imperial household. Not since the HUANGCHAO LIQI TUSHI was written have we seen a more stunning look at the colors, designs, and insignias of China's last imperial dynasty. With detailed descriptions and exquisite illustrations, this invaluable reference preserves the fashionable side of China's dynastic history for generations to come. With beautiful color illustrations culled from public and private collections and a helpful glossary of Chinese terms, IMPERIAL WARDROBE is an ideal reference book for collectors, scholars, and Chinese history enthusiasts.

Art takes many forms. In this selection of Asian court attire, dating from the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), the phrase "you are what you wear" resonates. Vollmer journeys back to the thirteenth-century Chinese Empire, where ancestors of the ruling Manchu conquerors dressed fittingly. These exquisite costumes remind us that royalty once set fashion standards the way that celebrities do today, but that these garments also promoted distinct national and political messages that helped keep a ruling minority in power for nearly three centuries. Dressed to Rule is a guide to the exhibit, of the same name, that appeared at the University of Alberta in 2007.
