Inhaltsangabe: While current fashion is fusing diverse cultural styles, National Geographic author Cathy Newman provides a fascinating global perspective on the historical and cultural significance of clothing and adornment. This timely--and timeless--subject is explored in evocative essays and lavish illustrations that offer a fresh perspective for today' s style-obsessed culture.
Featuring lively, anecdotal interviews from contemporary designers, fashion editors, historians, and cultural anthropologists, "Fashion offers a dynamic approach to this sumptuous topic from industry insiders. Newman, focusing on the body adorned, infuses her narrative with a sense of appreciation for the decadence and innovation that surrounds the notion of style. Intelligent, tantalizing, and extravagant, "Fashion is a unique compilation of spectacular images, clothes, designs, and writing.
Praise for "Fashion:
" Lavish." "--The Los Angeles Times
" A stunning array of international images of beauty that tell stories of ancient and contemporary times....It' s about more than haute couture runway fashions." "--St. Louis Dispatch
" A picture book of the most glamorous images." "--The Times (London)
Inhaltsangabe: Brings together 200 full-color photographs and essays on culture and style from a global perspective, drawing on interviews from designers, editors, historians, and cultural anthropologists to consider the significance of clothing and adornment. Original.
