Women in Fashion c1991 Book by Valerie Steele
Women of Fashion: Twentieth Century Designers (Hardcover)
by Valerie Steele is a very interesting book to add to your "fashion library". It is extremely informative, full of information about a lot of women designers through history, and some of it is very rare.
It has been said to keep in mind that it was published in 1991, and some of info has been updated since then.
This book would make a great gift for the fashion designer or trainee who wants to see what other designers have done in the past.
