This sassy style guide is for teens who want to discover the stories behind their favorite looks, find their own style, and learn what makes the fashion world tick.

Packed with gorgeous images, this illustrated book for young adults takes a unique look at fashion. From corsets and camis to tailoring and textiles, it reveals how modern-day looks, from runway to street fashions, draw on the styles of the past from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and from the rebel attire of the 50's to the sport-inspired looks of the 80's.

Through witty graphics and bright, lively text, teens can go behind the scenes of the exclusive fashion world. Style icons, designers, and top models all give practical tips to create stunning outfits, explain key fashion terms, discuss careers in fashion, and reveal secrets of the industry. Trivia, a glossary, inspirational quotes, and more make The Fashion Book a must-have accessory for teens.
