Fifty major fashion designers are profiled in this book with full-color spreads that showcase their most memorable creations.
Red carpet regulars such as Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana are included, as well as the classic clothiers Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfield, and Oscar de La Renta.
While some of these designers have designed for the masses - Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg - others prefer the avant-garde over function; Vivienne Westwood, for instance.
Readers will learn how the early 20th-century designers such as Coco Chanel and Andre Courreges made fashion history, and discover who's making it now: Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, to name a few.
A celebration of diversity and innovation and an essential handbook to a century of fashion, this exciting and informative look into the world of style will delight readers of every taste and age.
