Most of us have some feeling for fashion and have a vague idea of what is in and what is out. Less familiar to most, however, is the way fashion works as a global business. This book looks beyond the surface of this billion-dollar industry. Each entry is summarized in under a minute – using nothing more than two pages, 300 words, and one picture. Leading fashion experts provide an engrossing crash course in how the style world works today, alongside an engaging look at the founding fathers and mothers of fashion who set it up that way. Every aspect of the modern fashion industry is explored, from haute couture to high street, from catwalk to street style, and from glossy magazine to online blog. Some of the recurring themes behind fashion design are also explored, such as the influence of art, music and sport.
