Editorial Reviews

[Author Colin] McDowell makes delicious observation through a provocative mix of essays and photos. The collection is a must-have for all fashion mavens.
Hot off the fashion presses, this lushly illustrated tome is truly divine inspiration for aficionados, fashionistas, and you.
Richard Klein
...looks like the coffee-table book of the year...What lady or gentleman on a couch wouldn't be tantalized by the idea of finding before them, laid out in brilliant color, an unabbreviated, panoramic view of a half-century of everything that was chic and cunning and beautiful in clothes, illustrated with pictures of celebrities, especially the designers themselves, marvelously dressed.—The Village Voice
Sara James
Fifty years of hemline history are packed into this massive fashion tome, from Christian Dior's 1947 New Look to Yohji Yamamoto's current deconstructed designs.
In Style
US Weekly
This huge, information-packed book surveys modern fashion from Christian Dior's "New Look" in 1947 to the present. The fact-filled text complements the scores of runway shots, editorial spreads, and classic sketches. Gift-Worthiness: Four of four stars.
