For the first time, every aspect of the body and its clothing is examined, including hair, make-up, tattooing and accessories. Uniquely structured and easy to read, The Anatomy of Fashion takes the reader through the body and its clothing, from head to toe. Visually rich, with photographs, illustrations, paintings and film stills, including work by designers and labels such as Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Versace, Carhartt and Diesel. Appealing to both experts and casual readers, the book includes useful cross references and a detailed timeline. von McDowell, Colin
