Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 082300984X, Hardcover)

Where does the urge to change one's clothing style come from? Who sets fashion trends, and why do we follow them? This book gives readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the fascinating world of haute (and not so haute) couture, complete with garment-industry gossip.

Readers find out what was in vogue when and who was responsible, starting with fashion's first couturier, Charles Worth, and on through the likes of Chanel and Armani. The authors explain the whys and wherefores of myriad fashion movements and the cultural influences-art, dance, movies, music, sports-that shaped them. From Queen Victoria's knickers to Dior's "New Look" to fashion's future, this book covers everything an aspiring style guru ought to know.
