A chronological catwalk through the ages, Fashion: A Visual History, captures defining moments from the 1800s to the 21st century. Every generation recalls and identifies with the fashion icons and idols of their era, and this book focuses on those points when a distinctive style permeated through society and came to define a period. It asseses the contribution of innovative designers such as Charles Worth, Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, and more, plus takes a look at how music, film, dance, sports, and celebrities influenced our ever-changing sense of fashion. Additionally, by focusing on a distinct item, like a bowler hat, little black dress, stiletto or caftan, or on key shifts in trends, it draws on contemporary images ranging from beautiful paintings, fashion plates,vintage cartoons and photographs to demonstrate how fashion has evolved.
