Vogue Fashion takes a fresh look at fashion history over the last century, celebrating the most significant designers, developments and movements of each decade, which all contribute to fashion as we know it today. Starting from the time when Parisian haute couture houses led the way, former Vogue writer Linda Watson chronicles the arrival of the flapper, the fashion for 'make do and mend' of the war years, Christian Dior's New Look, the Swinging Sixties, punk, New Romanticism and the eclectic style of the 1990s. The A-Z section highlights 250 of the greatest designers of the twentieth century, who have inspired, created and altered the course of fashion. These informed biographies showcase the most significant international fashion designers, with entries ranging from Pierre Cardin to Hussein Chalayan, Rei Kawakubo to Calvin Klein. Illustrated with inspirational images from the Vogue archives, Vogue Fashion features iconic photography from Cecil Beaton, Nick Knight, David Bailey and Mario Testino, among others, all of whom have immortalized Vogue's seminal fashion 'moments'.
