Fashion: The Definitive Visual Guide

Is fashion your passion? Unlock the language of clothes with this ultimate fashion show that traces people's dress over the past 3000 years.

Fashion is a visual feast, packed with stunning illustrations of 1,500 costumes from around the globe. It celebrates famous trendsetters, designers, and fashion icons from Queen Henrietta Maria to Jackie Onassis and Jean Paul Gautier.

Fashion endlessly reinvents itself, reflecting society's trends and innovations. Discover why different looks caught on, from the elaborate ruffs, wigs, and farthingales of the 17th century, to Dior's "new look" in 1947 and shoulder pads in the 1980s. Find out why for centuries people's dress was regulated by governments' "sumptuary rules" and how the invention of new textiles from velvet to lycra influenced clothing design.

Whether you're part of the fashion industry, a student, or you just love clothes, Fashion is both a glorious visual treat and a treasured history. Hardcover, 480 pages.
