Overview

Fashion guru Catherine Schwaab packs the history of style, fashion, and its key designers into a practical and engaging guide. In Talk About Fashion, Catherine Schwaab uses her lengthy experience as a fashion journalist to break the subject down into lively and concise sections. The book offers a chronology to the major trends of the twentieth century, introduces thirty designers and their signature pieces that define fashion today, explores our "high-low" culture of drawing inspiration from haute couture and translating it into pieces at affordable prices, and outlines the timeless "ten commandments" of fashion. She identifies the brands with staying power and the role fashion plays in Hollywood. In conquering the common myth that "I don’t have anything to wear," Schwaab shows how to reinvent and recycle the best of fashion every day. Men’s fashion is also included. An appendix of practical information completes this guide, with a glossary, a visual dictionary to different tailoring cuts, and the basic essentials for every closet.
