Marnie Fogg - All books by this author

When… Really Works - All books in this series

The true power of fashion lies in how well it epitomizes the attitudes of an era or class, how it uses or drives current technology, and how it redefines the public’s collective tastes. In When Fashion Really Works, fashion insider Marnie Fogg explores 80 carefully selected garments that changed the fashion world. From Chanel’s little black dress to Levi’s denim jeans to the gingham bikini and the Adidas track suit, Fogg offers detailed analysis of each piece’s influence on the mainstream that includes:—
  • Biographical summaries of the designers and their key pieces
  • Quotes from critics and designers
  • More than 150 stunning color photos
Garments are analyzed in reference to ten themes —Utility, Exoticism, Asceticism, Eroticism, Revivalism, Form, Subversion, Athleticism, Luxury, and Futurism —with each theme divided into subcategories and illustrated with specific outfits. A must-have book for all who love fashion!
