The Fashion Book (New Edition) takes a fresh look at the fashion world and the people who created and inspired it. Spanning almost 200 years, the entire industry is represented; from clothing and footwear designers, to photographers, stylists, icons and retailers, as well as the educational institutions fundamental to their careers.

Marking the significant changes on the fashion landscape since the first edition, this revision includes updates to existing entries, as well as important new names who have fundamentally shaped the way we see fashion, from designers such as Nicholas Ghesquière, Gareth Pugh and Phoebe Philo, to influential image makers Mert and Marcus and Mario Sorrenti and contemporary icons Lady Gaga and Tilda Swinton. New faces rub shoulders with the fashion pioneers of the original edition; such as Coco Chanel, Issey Miyake, Yves Saint Laurent, Kate Moss and Helmut Newton.

Filled with inspirational images, The Fashion Book New Edition is organised as an A-Z guide of names, listing 576 entries across the categories of clothing and accessory designers, photographers, institutions, models and those iconic individuals who instigated or symbolised a whole fashion movement.
