There is no doubt that “The Fashion Book” is a must for any follower of style, and it’s glossy and glamorous layout will make it the perfect coffee-table book. Since it was realised in 2001, it has quickly become a bible for the fashion industry.
Easily one of the biggest and most comprehensive guides on all things fashion “The Fashion Book” is published by Phaidon Press Ltd. This huge undertaking was, of course, far too much for one author alone, and between the five that are involved – Richard Martin, Alice Mackrell, Melanie Rickey, Angela Buttolph and Suzy Menkes – there is a wealth of expertise and knowledge on offer.

The other aspect of this book I found to be stellar and not noted in any other fashion industry book (and I read them all) is what Mary Gehlhar says about patternmaking and samplemaking. She states both sides of the argument, doing it yourself and others doing it for you, articulately and succinctly. I applaud you Mary Gehlhar. You wrote a great book.
When everybody was wearing skinny jeans, you put on your crinoline. When they were all into Daisy Dukes, you loved daisy print. You don’t own leggings, jeggings, or fat boots, up-to-the-minute skirts or scarves. No, you’ve got a style all your own, which is why you need “The Fashion Book.”
