Format: Hardcover
I got this book to help with basic background information for my students to reference for their exam and it is just fine for that purpose. However it is a pocket sized book and only has limited photos to accompany the text.

This book was bought as a Christmas present for my Mum. As a lover of fashion, She was delighted with it. It's not only interesting (as a chronicle of fashion) but also has some amazing photographs and illustrations. Extremely well priced. Would strongly recommend.

Not very informative 29 May 2010
By J. Franklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very disappointed upon receiving this book, as it is tiny, almost more like a pamplet. But my chief complaint is that so many designers are overlooked. The designers who are profiled in this mini-book are only given a paragraph each. I also expected more photos in a book about the 50 most iconic fashion designers, yet there are just a few small photos, and none are very interesting. No photos from the Sixties or Seventies. I love seeing photos of, say, Ossie Clark's, Paco Rabanne's or Andre Courreges' designs. You won't find any of that in this book.

WARNING: THIS IS A TINY REFERENCE BOOK. 12 Jun 2010
By Jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was quite surprised and ultimately disappointed to receive this tiny edition featuring the world's leading designers over the past one hundred years. I was expecting a 'larger than life' book as the cover looked very enticing.

Worse, the editorial was merely a bland overview and nothing new was revealed. Many influential designers were also omitted from the text as well, especially from the 1960s and 1970s.

It's a shame the publisher didn't allow the author more editorial pages and pictorial spreads. I think then, they would've had a gem on their hands.

My rating reflects more on the style of book.

Having said that, the book is not expensive so if you're wanting a quite reference book on the Who's Who of the Fashion Industry, then this is a neat edition for your desk.
