Fashion Book: Fashion, the Century of the Designer
Fashion Book: "Fashion, the Century of the Designer"
In the first few years of the 2000's, there were many publications that reviewed 20th century fashion. This is one of those books, however it is well written and illustrated, being more than a pretty coffee table book.
Every fashion library needs an encyclopedia of sorts. This is a huge volume that spans the 20th century and includes nearly every important trend and designer. Arranged by decades, this book can give an overview of a specific era, or it can be used to look up specific information. Probably every designer of importance in included here, located within the decade chapter where their contributions mattered most. Additionally, there are features that include British, Italian and American fashion.
Having this book on the shelf will ensure that you can find information on 20th century fashion in a concise but well defined way, providing a start for any type of research or general knowledge. If I have any problem with "Fashion, the Century of the Designer" it might be that it is very heavy and awkward, being larger than most textbooks on the subject. I guess that's the price you pay to include lots of color photos.
