Fashion sites?

Hi everyone

I need some help in developing a historical reference on fashion design,
and I'm hoping some of you can help.

At the middle school we have what is called an "options" class that's
offered for 14 - 15 sessions (twice a week / 40 minutes). It's a chance
for students to explore various areas of individual interest, and the
students sign up for their choices.

I want to offer something along the line of "Fun and Funny Fashions." My
thoughts are to include a short historical perspective of fashion fads --
I already have a book called "Shoes" that borders on the hysterical -- many
outrageous, and some not too functional styles! Then I will present some
gesture, figure drawing. But most of all I want the students to have fun
inventing/ creating their own fashions. Pencil, watercolor, and pastels
are some of the media we could use.

Any other ideas, resources, or web sites would be especially welcome!
