    1 thought on “Fifty Years of Fashion: New Look to Now

    1. Lots of great history on the trajectory of both European and American fashion Most major designers addressed but special attention given to Christian Dior The final pages address fetish fashion which is Steele s specialty, see her books on Gothic fashion as well as the book dedicated strictly to the corset.

    2. Starting out in the mid 1940 s this soft bound book pays homage to Dior Balenciaga, Balmain, Visconti, Mary Quant, and others, it has many photos of the greats, their signature pieces, and the stars that wore them and made them famous, David Hemmings, Mick Jagger, Kate Moss, etc but it lacks substance and heart I found it rather empty, and missing some of the most important fashion statements of the decades that it was supposed to represent.
