I had checked this book out at a public library, and it was 1998 edition. I loved it so much, when I parted it with it I had to buy it. And found out there is a new issue on Amazon! You can imagine how much Fashion has changed in 10 years, so there are new names in it, totally updated! I'm studying fashion, so it's a must for me. But anyone interested in fashion history will find this book very useful and interesting to read. Care when cocktail dresses were invented, how lace is made or simply intrested in bio of Coco Chanel? Then it's the perfect book for you!

I sell pre-owned and vintage clothing, shoes and accessories online, and purchased this as a companion to some other texts for research.

It is not an exhaustive or complete dictionary by any means. Only a few of the designers I have attempted to research appear, and I deal mostly with common and popular labels. An even smaller percentage of fashion definitions and terms that are relevant to my purposes are listed (but the ones that appear are well described).

The photographs and illustrations are beautiful. It is written in clear, simple language and contains many cross references to design houses, designers and definitions, which is indeed helpful.

I believe this would make a nice addition to a beginner's collection or a fan of fashion in general, but for the professional or student this is lacking a great deal of information.
