100 Ways Fashion Changed The World

There are few things that I love more than history and fashion, but I don’t have the vintage shopping budget of Rachel Zoe or the means to visit every fashion history exhibit worldwide. Fortunately, the London Design Museum is bringing the fashion history to me and everyone else. Fifty Dresses that Changed The World and Fifty Shoes that Changed The World, due out Nov. 1, present a guided tour of how iconic shoes and dresses have impacted our society and fashion design. The little black dress didn’t become a must-have garment for just any reason. And cork platform shoes might not have been invented if it weren’t for Mussolini’s invasion of Ethiopia in 1935. Don’t think of these two books as simple encyclopedias because they’re much more sacred than that. With all the fashion history they explore, these books deserve their own spot on your fashion altar right next to the fashion bible — Vogue magazine. [Pipeline]
