Fashion was born and developed through time thanks to ideas, cultural movements, music, technology … everything that is interconnected and is reflected in new fabrics, patterns, accessories, shoes, handbags, colors, shapes. 100 Ideas that changed Fashion by Harriet Worsley is a fascinating book that make us discover all those moments that became iconic in the history of fashion.
100 Ideas That Changed Fashion chronicles the most influential fashion ideas that changed womenswear in the West from 1900 to the present day. The book will be visually arresting, exciting to read and an inspiring fashion bible. Charting the incidents and ideas that changed the way women dress, it gives a unique perspective on the history of twentieth-century fashion. Rather than just documenting the changes in fashion, it also explains why these changes happened. From the invention of the bias cut and the stiletto heel to designers such as Coco Chanel who changed the way we think about clothes, the book will be entertaining, intelligent and a visual feast.
What I liked most about this book is that it is not a merely technical book, nor focused from an industrial, marketing and sales point of view, nor does it speak purely of the history of fashion as a study manual. Talk about how certain people or groups imposed new concepts of fashion, escaping from what the market traditionally imposes
I quite enjoyed reading this book and learned so many facts that I actually ignored about how some things now days we take as normal or common surged, I have to said this is a must book that every fashion lover should have in their bookshelf because is very well done from the information and photography point of view.
