Fab Read: A Cultural History of Fashion in the Twentieth Century, From the Catwalk to the Sidewalk

It's never too late to brush up on your fashion ABCs. A Cultural History of Fashion in the Twentieth Century: From the Catwalk to the Sidewalk, by Bonnie English, $19, takes you on a journey through fashion in the last century. Focusing on fashion's ever-inspiring evolution, from fairy tales based on glass slippers to T-shirts being used to campaign against wars, this quick study should bring you up to date!

English also explores fashion's impact on culture from Haute Couture to Ready-To-Wear as well as the growth of the fashion's dark side: the black market of fakes and the anti-fashion of the punks. Though this book isn't available until August, you can pre-order it here!
