"A celebration of fashion's most adventurous, outrageous moments. The modern history of fashion has always had significant turning points that altered everything that came afterwards -- from the first outing of Chanel's little black dress and the scandal of the first mini-skirt to Alexander McQueen's armadillo shoes and Jean Paul Gaultier's cone bra for Madonna. This book honours and celebrates these groundbreaking fashion moments. Each of the 100 fashion turning points is illustrated and put into its historical context -- how and why it was ahead of the curve. The emphasis is on the designer who created it, the celebrity or personality who wore it and why it was groundbreaking in terms of the social and cultural shift it created."--Provided by publisher's website.
