Icons of Fashion; The 20th Century 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

It's a great overview of clothing, and designers. It has the major designers,and major icons, but is lacking some of the more underground,or smaller designers that have made as much,if not more of an impact. A great book to have.
