Praise For…

The Fashion Book is far more than a decorative object. It is an instructive and indispensable reference book, one that provides a crash course in fashion history. I'm delighted to see some of my obscure favorites mixed in with household names, and photographers, journalists, hair stylists, and illustrators mixed in with fashion designers. The historical images chosen look fresh, and the contemporary ones already seem classic.—Amy Fine Collins, Special Correspondent to Vanity Fair

It's no secret that Phaidon's epic The Fashion Book, first released in 1998, is an authoritative resource for industry insiders and fans alike. Now the coffee table tome has been given new life with a definitive updated edition.—

Devotees of fashion, photography, and style will covet The Fashion Book: New Edition by the editors of Phaidon, and A to Z compendium of the creative minds and talents who have helped shape the way we see fashion.—Vanity Fair
