In this quick study of key fashion moments, designers, and modes, seven sections cover "Designers," "Themes & Inspirations," "The Media," and more. Chapters are preceded by a glossary, with snappy graphics and succinct write-ups on subjects such as Anna Wintour, China's impact on the market, the power of fragrance, and designer profiles.
VERDICT Sort of a Cliff's Notes for fashion fans, this is great fun for younger readers all the way up to grandparents needing a refresher course.
