i found this book by accident here on amazon, and what a find!

it's set out like a fast and furious handbook on the elements of style and the major game-changers of the last century. the images are excellent, and many of them would be suitable for framing.

the cover of the book lists several of the 100 ideas that are in the book, but a smattering of my favorites are as follows:

the delphos gown
royals and politicians
photographs and magazines (the image on page 24 by cecil beaton is stunning)
costume jewelry (the image here of coco chanel is beautiful)
the bias cut
surrealism
the fashion show as theatrical spectacle
disposable fashion
low-key luxury

these bite-size sections are the perfect length to whet the appetite, and the images are well selected to accompany each two page topic.

quite simply, this is a wonderful and informative book at a very reasonable price!

If you're looking for a book that gives you a brief overview of many of fashions historical milestones, this is it. Wonderful for anyone interested in divining into fashion and a fun read in general. I do wish some of the entries were more in-depth, but that really isn't the purpose of this book (at least the way it seemed to me), it's really more of a reference or an entree into fashion.

I enjoy flipping through this coffee table addition quite often. These books are chalk full of easy to read history and high quality photos to study.

This book was a bit worn, but it mattered not! The photographs are incredible, and sometimes that's easier to grasp than just the written word. Our granddaughter was over-the-moon with this book! Laurel
