Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While current fashion is fusing diverse cultural styles, National Geographic author Cathy Newman provides a fascinating global perspective on the historical and cultural significance of clothing and adornment. This timely--and timeless--subject is explored in evocative essays and lavish illustrations that offer a fresh perspective for today’ s style-obsessed culture.

Featuring lively, anecdotal interviews from contemporary designers, fashion editors, historians, and cultural anthropologists, "Fashion offers a dynamic approach to this sumptuous topic from industry insiders. Newman, focusing on the body adorned, infuses her narrative with a sense of appreciation for the decadence and innovation that surrounds the notion of style. Intelligent, tantalizing, and extravagant, "Fashion is a unique compilation of spectacular images, clothes, designs, and writing.
