When it comes to fashion, most people have at least a vague sense of what's in, what's out, and what they might actually wear themselves. Less familiar, however, is the way fashion functions as a global business, employing some 27 million people. Here you can learn how the style world works today, find out who makes the decisions about which looks are cutting edge and which are past their sell-by date, and meet the founding fathers (and mothers) of fashion. The book covers 50 essential topics in detailed 300-word briefs, along with one-line summations, names of key figures, directions for further study, and full-page illustrations.
