Fifty major fashion designers are profiled in this book with fullcolor spreads that showcase their most memorable creations. Red carpet regulars such as Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana are included, as well as the classic clothiers Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfield, and Oscar de la Renta. While some of these designers have designed for the masses--Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg--others prefer the avant-garde over function; Vivienne Westwood, for instance. Readers will learn how the early 20th-century designers such as Coco Chanel and André Courrèges made fashion history, and discover who's making it now: Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, to name a few. A celebration of diversity and innovation and an essential handbook to a century of fashion, this exciting and informative look into the world of style will delight readers of every taste and age.
