Fashion – that means glamour, creativity and always the expression of a certain attitude toward life. This book is devoted to the legendary world of fashion from its origins in the nineteenth century until our own time. Which social, historical and cultural developments coalesced to allow fashion to become what it is today? Which designers had especially significant impact on their fashion eras, and what did their creations look like? Informative chapters that introduce each era coupled with extensive portraits of the groundbreaking fashion icons and countless expressive photographs work together to form a comprehensive portrayal of the rapid development that took fashion from the liberation of women from the corset all the way to the creations of modern designers.
What the press says:

“In its over 500 pages, this fabulous book, full of amazingly beautiful images, examines all things fashion from the beginning when France put fashion on the map with its invention of Haute Couture right up to the trendsetters of today. […] This book would make an incredible gift for someone who would love to learn what is considered to be the beginning of the fashion industry, as well as the key players and their key contributions.”
Cap Fashionista, January 18, 2011

“A leisurely read, a crash-course on designers, or a must-have for fashionistas, FASHION is a well written, beautifully produced volume that will provide many hours of pleasure (as well as inspiration).”
Technorati, November 17, 2010
