Authoritative as it is witty it is a must-have for discerning fashionistas because it traces the history of everything in your closet-from suits to sportswear-and recounts the contributions made by revolutionary designers to the ever-evolving world of fashion.
A quality fashion book for the mainstream reader, Tim Gunn’s survey of Western fashion stands to corner the fashion-book market-and to serve as the perfect gift for everyone who likes clothes, cultural history, or Project Runway. Marked by Tim’s personable tone, this comprehensive volume not only informs but reminds us that fashion is ultimately about innovation and fun. In each of its fifteen informative chapters, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible takes one item of clothing from its earliest incarnation to the present day, covering everything from the cultural history of the garment to current fads. By the final chapter, the reader will feel clad, head to toe, in fashion wisdom.
