Who's Who in Fashion, 5th Edition, captures the energy, drama, and excitement of the luminaries who make up the world of fashion. Alphabetical listing of profiles includes useful design philosophies, as well as mentors and sources of inspiration. The biographies trace the careers of many of the men and women who've contributed to fashion. Besides today's major figures and legendary designers of the past, there are lesser known people and newcomers worth watching as well as a sampling of interesting nonconformists-free spirits who prefer to work off the main fashion paths. The picture would not be complete without the style makers, those with an eye and an instinct for fashion and who interpret it for the public; and of course, the editors, photographers, artists- those who sketch and photograph, write about fashion, and promote it.
New to this Edition: -- Timeline organized by decades identifies influences of each period -- Highlights of the most successful names in the fashion industry including designers of apparel and accessories for men, women and children -- Features photographers, editors, and celebrities who've contributed to the industry -- Four-color pages throughout of designers at work and their most influential designs -- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
