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.
