Description - Collectable Names and Designs in Womens Fashion by Tracy Martin
Although there are many books on the shelves dedicated to this subject where Top Fashion Designers differs is that it looks at why many fashion pieces have become highly regarded within collector's circles. Throughout the pages Tracy will be sharing her own personal fashion knowledge on what to look out for, where to buy and explain the origins behind those iconic vintage pieces. She will also be looking at why retro fashion is suddenly in such high demand and which of the modern fashion items you should be investing in now for the future. Another aspect of fashion which Tracy will be examining is nostalgia and she guarantees that this book will take you on a trip down memory lane as she explores the various decades and the history behind the times. Tracy will also include the lives and times of the pioneering fashion designers themselves from where they gain their inspiration to how this is then transported onto the catwalks.
