Fashion: 150 Years of Couturiers, Designers, Label




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.
