A pretty intro to the world of fashion, it's a lovely to leaf through coffee table book. If you're very into fashion, you'll find some glaring omissions, but again, as a coffee table book, it won't really detract.

Fashion influences Feb. 16 2013
By dianne k rivette - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not about Audrey, in case you thought it centered around her style. The first half is very good up until 1960;s then the fashion references seem to be more the bizarre, funky influences, not what the fashion houses put out that was actually worn by the culture. But from the 1900 to about 1964 it presents a very good visual history on the changing female apparel.

Fab-U-lous Sept. 24 2012
By Mich - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this book. I saw it in the store and then found it cheaper via Amazon of course. Anyhow, this is a fairly sizable book, meaning it's got quite a few pages. It is also wonderfully illustrated with tons of examples of how fashion has changed over the years. This is a wonderful read for anyone who follows fashion as it gives you a great sense of how we got to where we are in today's more modern trends. The text is even entertaining for me, which says a lot for myself ;-)
