Phaidon's iconic global bestseller The Fashion Book takes a fresh look at the fashion world and the people who created and inspired it. Spanning almost 200 years, the entire fashion industry is represented: from designers to photographers, stylists, and retailers, as well as editors and creative directors.
Marking significant changes on the fashion landscape, this edition features important new names who have fundamentally shaped the way we see fashion in recent years, including Virgil Abloh, Gosha Rubchinskiy, and Alessandro Michele, influential photographer Petra Collins, designer and contemporary icon Rihanna, and Leandra Medine, alongside fashion pioneers of the previous edition such as Coco Chanel, Issey Miyake, Kate Moss, Erdem, and Richard Avedon.
Showcasing more than 500 of fashion's greatest icons in A-Z order, the book places early stars such as Karl Lagerfeld and Helmut Newton alongside today's most innovative designers and creatives, including Edward Enninful, Iris van Herpen, Stella McCartney, and cutting-edge brands such as Supreme. This bestselling classic remains a comprehensive and definitive view of the fashion industry today.
