Format: Paperback
Our 10-year old daughter and I enjoyed this book in a museum gift shop after seeing a Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit. (It was full price there, so we came looking here...)

Each of the 50 artists is presented in about 3-5 pages. The narrative seemed solid (pretty well-written, decent scope), and the full-color, large photos accompanying each artist (caveat - I did not read all 50, but it appeared photos of designs accompany each) add significantly to the book's value and enjoyment. Even at full price, this is a good value for anyone about 9+ years of age who finds the topic interesting. I think it would be an excellent gift choice for a preteen or high-school age student interested in fashion design.

My 12 year old daughter wants to be a fashion designer. I bought her this book to add to her fashion library. I wanted her to know many of these designers. There are some standards such as Chanel but some more modern designers as well. She loved it and reads it all the time. I'm very happy with the book and recommend it to anyone who likes to look at fashion and wants to learn a little bit about the different designers.

This book has plenty of information on all of the 50 notable designers recommended. To back this up, there are high-quality pictures of two or three of each of the designers creations. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to learn about some of the top designers in the industry!

Good condition, love the content of this book. The photographs are huge and beautiful. It also has a unique timeline bar at the top of the pages showing you what was going on at that time.
