Overly Ambitious And Too Eclectic

This fashion book switched from one era to another in a single page and the attributions were hard to follow. The print in the mini edition requires a high powered microscope to read. The book is a mishmash of history and trivia and some downright headscratching inclusions like Boy George and a rag doll and Johnny Weismuller in a tanksuit. The pictures alone don't cut it and not being able to read the captions due to print size renders half the book inaccessible to the reader.

The Fashion Book

A great reference for those interested in people who have made major contributions in fashion. This is a beautiful A-Z guide with over 400 entries that includes fashion designers, photographers, models, retailers, illustrators and icons. Even though there is not a lot of text it provides you with just enough written information that you want to find out more if it does not already quench your curiosity.

Great fashion book for the coffee table

512 thick, glossy pages of fashion. Each page highlights a different person... Designers, models, icons, photographers, illustrators, milliners, cosmetic creators, tailors, etc. Each page has a brief paragraph or two describing the artists contributions, and below is a single large picture or illustration depicting the work of the artist. One of the more stunning fashion books I've seen. Quite impressive.

The Best Fashion Book

This is without a doubt the best fashion book ever written. Not only are designers in this book, but also fashion illustrators, editors, and icons. The work and time put into this book must have been unbelievable, and to charge such a low price. The book is definately worth the price, and much much more. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in fashion, at any level.

one of the best fashion books i've seen in years

a fabulous book!brilliantly done from the past to the present,reconmended to all that love fashion. the pictures are clear and creative. well proportioned to each designer, little description yet just enough, if you like getting books with tons of great imagages this the book you want.*

Fashion history at its best

A brilliant, spectacular, visually-entertaining compendium of the who's who in fashion, The Fashion Book has not failed my high expectations. Note the well-researched facts and pictures (which many fashion books are guilty of printing inexcusably inaccurate facts)that make it the perfect reference book. I particularly like how images documented capture the quintessential essence of the work of those highlighted, not necessarily those we have come to know through much-publicised ads and editorials. Kudos to Phaidon and the editorial team.
