Hailed by 'Vogue' as the fashion bible and by 'Elle' as the ultimate fashion reference book, 'The Fashion Book' takes a fresh look at the fashion world and the people who created it. Easy to use and filled with beautiful and memorable images, it is the perfect A-Z guide to 500 key clothes and accessory designers, photographers, models and iconic celebrities who make up the fashion industry. In its entirety, 'The Fashion Book' takes a fresh look at the fashion world of today and tomorrow, through the people who created and inspired it. Spanning 150 years, the entire industry is represented - from pioneering designers, including Coco Chanel and Issey Miyake, to influential photographers such as Richard Avedon and Helmut Newton and the people they photographed. This essential sourcebook cuts through the conventional classifications to create juxtapositions that make fascinating and unlikely comparisons: Elsa Schiaparelli sits opposite Claudia Schiffer while Vivienne Westwood rubs shoulders with Oscar Wilde. The essential guide to navigating the fashion world, The Fashion Book presents the giants of fashion history including Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld alongside key designers of today such as Alexander Wang and Phoebe Philo, Mert & Marcus and Terry Richardson, while Isabella Blow, Lady Gaga and David Beckham join the ranks of the most influential style icons.
