Stunning ... it's an education not only about the people who create fashion but also the people who bring the looks to life (Los Angeles Times)
A brilliant showcase of the past century of fashion (Elle Decoration)
Hefty and gorgeous (Fashionista)
A vibrant coffee table book (Daily Telegraph)
Every one of the 150 alluring, often rare photographs is bang on trend (Scotsman)
VERDICT Beautiful color and black-and-white illustrations of clothing and fashion photography are included, and the book is longer and larger than most tomes on fashion. This is best for readers who want a well-illustrated general overview of 20th-century women's fashion but are not too concerned with a detailed or in-depth account of the subject. (Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State College Library, MA Library Journal)

Top Customer Reviews
Most books about fashion history, if good, can provide a lot of factual information. Mr Silver's book delivers all of this but also provides us with an insight on why women adopted particular looks and how they remain relevant today. His obsessive search for something old which looks modern may not be something which everyone can aspire to be good at but read this book and study the illustrations and you're much more likely to find that perfect dress.
This is a perfect present for any fashion interested friend. For its size and quality, it's one of the best investments you're likely to make.
You might think you know your fashion history, and who's who of the last 100 years in the industry but this book will teach you anew and give you a thirst for even more information and imagery. This is going to be a great Christmas present for almost everyone I know! Mr. Silver has really written and compiled an excellent tome.
