Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fashion statement itself about the period it covers, Fashion: The 20th Century profiles and celebrates in photos all of the preeminent fashion designers and the clothing they have created, from the rise of Chanel in the 1920's to Christian Dior's postwar "New Look," to the age of Versace and his fin de siécle contemporaries. In addition, this illuminating volume traces fashion's other driving forces-- the key figures, corporations, stores, newspapers, and fashion magazines and their influences.

A comprehensive, visual sourcebook for anyone interested in fashion, this chic paperback book is a compact and stylish addition any coffee table or bookshelf.

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1999 and now fully revised and updated, Fashion is a photographic celebration that surveys all the preeminent couturiers and fashion houses from the era before the Great War through the revolutionary changes wrought by the Jazz Age and the Swinging Sixties to designers at work today. Everything is included in this authoritative volume, from Chanel's little black dress to the latest Prada or envelope-pushing boutiques.What distinguishes Fashion from other overviews or histories of the subject is that it also examines the ancillary driving forces that have propelled fashion trends and fuelled the rise of styles. In many ways, this book makes clear that these supposedly secondary influences (fashion editors, advertising, newspapers, magazines, department stores, boutiques) became increasingly important during the course of the twentieth century. Included in the book are overviews of key figures in the fashion industry and design community.
