Format: Hardcover
This book takes a unique approach to the fashions of the past century. Arranged by theme and idea rather than chronologically, the book is a breath of fresh air in the realm of "fashion books". Each entry is written by someone with close knowledge of the subject, and so is more personal than a faceless editor. Overall, I thought the book was really interesting and a great read.

Format: Hardcover
I have only just begun this book (20 pages in), and I am enthralled. So many fashion books are written chronologically, so this book, arranged by theme and designer, is an interesting change. The pictures are gorgeous, many of them are in color, and every other page contains an essay on various topics. The topics range from an influence on fashion, a particular designer, themes in collections, or a period of history. Included are also short timelines of the careers of designers from the last century. This book covers a wide range of topics, and gives the reader a comprehensive look at the past century in fashion. I would not recommend this book for someone who wants a chronological look at the development of fashion trends, because the articles skip from the thirties to the Victorian era to the twenties. It is interesting, colorful, and even educational.

This book is so bad, photos are old and silly, it's one for your worst friend.
