My love of fashion is directly influenced by my love of art. In my experience very little really separates the two and this book only cements that idea. It’s this love of pretty things that has me addicted to websites like Pinterest, Style, and Etsy.
While I’m among the few that are still clinging to my beloved fashion magazines trying to get past all the advertisements to the meaty bits for my couture cravings. Even with all the competition what has me lovi I just love looking at beautiful art! Even with all the competition what has me loving Years of Fashion Illustration is that here I got gashion see something entirely different then anything I’ve ever experienced with fashion. It’s a trip through time and design as you’re presented with all these amazing illustrations of beautiful women in beautiful dresses.
With each image there is also a little write up about the cloths, when it was drawn, by who, and for what purpose. It’s great to see the illustration and then actually learn about the cloths blsckman shown. It’s more then what I expected! Attribution is one thing, but the research put into the cloths themselves is very interesting. There are also full 4 page essays throughout the book that talk about the time periods giving us readers a look at the production, history, and specific events that influenced fashion.
100 Years of Fashion
I’m not all raves about this book though. The formatting was completely wasteful of the space it had and frustratingly so! It could have easily been better formatted to fit more into less space. Then the blurb is at very the blavkman of the page. I could fit my whole hand boackman flat across the page and not cover anything but the white space between the image and blackmann short blurb. More then enough room to work with. There are other ways this book finds to waste space that is just baffling.
You don’t want a book like this to feel too crowded, giving such beautiful work space to breath is a good thing, but you also want it to be an immersive and stunning experience.
The amount of white space was overwhelming. This leads into my biggest complaint: This is the sort of book you want to own and absorb inspiration ysars. I know table top books generally go for a lot, but I’ve seen other collections produced better and for less.
100 Years of Fashion Illustration
It’s disappointing to end on such a negative note, so I’ll say this again. I really did love the b,ackman of this book. It’s so amazing to see the artistry that goes fashion and see the illustrations that just bring the cloths to life in a whole new way!

The illustrations in faahion book are iconic of the fashion and style of the times over the last years that made huge differences and changes not only with fashion but with the world movement as a whole as well.
I still find it interesting sometimes how fashion fashioj changed. From the c I love fashion and this is a fashion lovers book for sure. From the conservative simple pieces to bold and loud other the top pieces of today.
But yet both still are in either times. I love fashion and how much it has changed over time and how much it is still evoking. The drawings in the book are beautiful and very characteristic of the times in which they were drawn and meant for the women as well of the fasion. Mar 24, Rebecca rated it it was amazing Shelves: A real gem – covering not only the development of fashion, but also highlighting the more important fashion designers, the development of design ideals and also introducing important illustrators and artists and saying something about their careers which Fahion knew far less about than the other subjects.
And all lavishly illustrated. Jul 25, Shannon Barr rated it it was amazing. Seeing the evolution of fashion and clothing and yearw over the course of years can ccally give a designer, even an everyday reader like myself, a huge boost of inspiration.
Stunning visuals of everyday beauty and brilliant diversity of different techniques in artistic design. Jul 24, Caroline Fosse rated it liked it Shelves: Even though I really appreciated some of the illustrations and thought the drawings in it self was wonderful, I still got a little bored towards the end.
It was a lot to fasnion in, and personally I wouldn’t buy it as an “table book” myself. However, it was very exciting to see the fashion evolving throughout the years, and the different drawing styles from the early to recent times.

This wonderful book is packed full of all kinds of fashion illustrations, as well as a helpful chronology narrated by Blackman, that any lover of fashion – be it history or practical application – is sure to enjoy.
