Since Worth's innovative touch, there have been scores of outstanding fashion designers--all of whom make their appearance. The history of fashion from the mid 1860s is related in terms of profiles of the leading, most imaginative and skilled, most influential, and often most acclaimed fashion designers accompanied by abundant photographic material. One could follow the history just by following the copious, most color photographs. One sees how fashion spread out from its beginnings in Paris to the global, popular enterprise it is today. But one wants to read the profiles too for their colorful biographical material and ideas and approaches to fashion, and for putting the respective designer into the context of fashion history.
Seeling has been a top editor at Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire after her time as a journalist interviewing many world-class celebrities. This incomparable work of hers can be used as a text on fashion history and also a reference. And its readable text plus the countless photographs give it the style of a popular book for informative and entertaining reading on fashion. And it's an ideal coffee-table book.
The book reads like a magazine? I know that the author was the editor in chief of the glossy magazines such as ”Cosmopolitan“, ”Vogue“, and ”Marie Claire“ but I guess I want a book to be a book and a magazine to be a magazine. I also wished they had spent more time time in the earlier years of fashion there were also no detail pictures which I have grown to enjoy in hardcover coffee table books. I liked the first quarter of the book and the rest I did it enjoy as much.
This book is massive in size 512 pages is rare to find. While there are a lot of pictures they were pictures that I have seen in other fashion books so nothing new to report in that arena. The book is extraordinarily well bound and the pages of the book has this wonderful slick glossy texture to it. It is a very richly made book. The book is organized very well in decades and in designers and they did have a few great designers in there Westwood, Fortuny and some others. I understand that fashion is sometimes dictated around the world we live in and what is happening around us at the time-war, economics, pop culture, music etc...but this book just had too much of the culture part and not enough of the fashion for me. If it had been a book on photos and that is what I understood I was buying I would have been happy.
These photos are fantastic and openly displays the variety of fashion from the cute and inspiring, to the odd and very abstract!
The photographs are really well spaced and nicely breaks up the very informative text. An excellent reference book with interesting and little-known facts about these designers.
