Book of the week: Fashion Designers A-Z
Taschen has launched Fashion Designers A-Z, celebrating more than 100 of the greatest fashion icons. First released in 2012 only as a collector's item, the book is now available for the mass market and provides a quick insight into the beginnings and success story of fashion greats whose works now hang permanently at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology museum.
From Chanel and Dior to Givenchy and Balenciaga, the book is a comprehensive fashion encyclopaedia and also includes images of over 500 garments that hold both special aesthetic and philosophical values that are connected to the designers. Accompanying texts by experts summarise the importance of both designer and garment in the world of fashion.
Fashion Designers A-Z is Dhs240 and is available at taschen.com.
