Summary
"From Belle Epoque tea gowns through Dior's 1947 'New Look' to the impact of the Internet and fashion blogs, this comprehensive, international survey explores the significant developments in fashion, accessories, hairstyles and makeup, from 1900 to now. It focuses on key movements and innovations in style for both men and women, and explores these through the work of the most original and influential designers and couturiers. Chapters are organized chronologically to highlight crucial shifts in style and major world eventse. Exciting and at times revolutionary advances in fashion are placed within economic, political and cultural contexts. This new edition is brought right up to date with a chapter that discusses, among many topics, the importance of new fashion centres in India and China, the dominance of the high street, and how fashion is now so multi-cultural and fast moving. A reference section includes an extensive bibliography, making this an invaluable survey for all those interested in modern and contemporary fashion."--Publisher's description
