Dictionary of Fashion & Fashion Designers

This book is on yoox.com. Vogue calls it
"a fashion bible". Here's the blurb from
the webpage:

"This indispensable guide to fashion provides
in more than 1,200 entries detailed information
on the life and work of every important designer
from 1840 up to the present day, including not
only couturiers but also shoe, hat and knitwear
specialists, costume designers, jewelers and
hairdressers.

It also covers the fashion media, photographers
and illustrators, influential art movements,
fashion terms, garment and accessory styles,
technical processes, and every kind of fabric,
as well as personalities who have influenced
fashion or promoted a style."
