This ambitious and fascinating book traces the history of fashion in every part of the world, from Greco-Roman woven-cloth clothing and the silk court dress of the Chinese Tang dynasty to contemporary sportswear designers and Japanese street culture. Organized chronologically, the book traces the evolution of fashion period by period and trend by trend, while detailed timelines provide historical and cultural context. Fashion: The Whole Story is indispensable for everyone who loves the line of a superb suit or knows the joy of wearing a great pair of shoes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An epic narrative ... the format makes for a handy dip-in guide without losing out on the details' - Dazed Digital
'Lavishly and handsomely illustrated ... provides encyclopaedic, frequently surprising and enlightening information ... convinces us that the subject of fashion is not only meaningful - but inexhaustible' - Prospect Magazine
'A serious yet readable history that takes the reader from the togas and tunics of early civilisations to the age of ASOS, with a welcome sprinkling of unpredictable detours on the way ... and delightfully detailed inserts' - Daily Telegraph
