"The Fine Art of Fashion tells us of the changes in attitudes and fashion that have occurred throughout history. Its emphasis is on fashion as portrayed in popular and exclusive magazines from the eighteenth century until the present. These magazines are a window on the world: they capture the spirit of their time and place it in the perspective of society's development. Above all, it is the illustrations that tell the story: they are testimony to the talent and creativity of the great image-makers and master-craftsmen, whose work deserves a place in the history of artistic achievement."--BOOK JACKET.
