Description
A smart and entertaining journey through the history of fashion (Publishers Weekly, starred review) from Project Runway co-host Tim Gunn.
In the beginning there was the fig leaf...
and the toga. Crinolines and ruffs. Chain mail and corsets. What do these antiquated items have to do with the oh-so-twenty-first-century skinny jeans, graphic tee, and sexy pumps you slipped into this morning? Everything Fashion begets fashion, and what was the height of style yesterday has evolved into the trendsetting looks of today.
Join Project Runway s Tim Gunn on an epic tour through centuries of what women and men want and have always wanted to look and feel their best in clothes that express who they are embellished with Tim's personalized commandments of the closet to help you build the perfect wardrobe for every occasion.
