Reviews

"a handy, handsome companion created for a 2016 exhibition at the Mus e des Arts D coratifs in Paris."
--New York Times

"300 YEARS: Fashion Forward is not some encyclopedic accounting of every fashion trend and every designer of the past three centuries but is instead an incisive and exquisitely curated overview of the world of fashion as seen through the eyes of those at Mus e des Arts D coratifs...300 YEARS: Fashion Forward can be a crash course in fashion for the less exposed fashion reader while it may be a source of new insights for the more experienced and educated fashion reader. This is no dry read of facts and data but instead an engaging, provocative read that needs to be considered by anyone who has an interest in fashion. Having completed this tome, readers will feel saddened if they have missed this wonderful presentation that ended this past spring at the Mus e des Arts D coratifs."
--New York Journal of Books "Three centuries of fashion and style are the focus of the new book Fashion Forward: 300 Years of Fashion. The book traces the evolution of fashion and fashion techniques as well as its relation with the decorative arts from the time of Louis XV and his royal court to 2016."
--Forbes.com "This fantastic reference book traces the evolution of fashion--from the opulence of the court of Louis XV to the couture of today and illustrates three centuries of fashion trends and innovation. Originally published to accompany a major exhibition at Mus e des Arts D coratifs in Paris, it's a definitive book on fashion history. This is a well-ilustrated book that's also brainy--as it explores how fashion has always been intertwined with the fine arts and decorative arts."
