I love fashion but i have none and this book has 4 paragraph on each peice of fashion;what it looks like,who made it,who made it hot and how to rock it.Also before each chapter it has a paragraph talking about the history of them;dresses and skirts,Tops and coats,pants and short,shoes and underthings.The accessories dont have the4 paragraphs though but its still a very good book.
Can't tell a kitten heel from an espadrille, or wondering what makes that sweater "boyfriend," anyway? Then Fashion 101 is for you. Each chapter deals with a different category of clothing (shoes, lingerie, tops pants) and illustrates the major types, with descriptions, historical tidbits, and hints on the best way to wear the item. The book's "pros" are that it's a pretty unique compilation of information and the format is amazingly accessible; cons are that it's definitely aimed at a younger audience and what was included or left out of the different chapters is definitely eclectic. Overall it's a great mini-encyclopedia for anyone who wants to be able to sound like they know a little bit about fashion.
