REVIEW: Know It All Fashion, Rebecca Arnold

Tuesday, 19 June 2018

Most of us have some feeling for fashion and have a vague idea of what’s in and what’s out. Less familiar to most, however, is the way fashion works as a global business. Know-It-All Fashion looks beyond the surface of this billion-dollar industry. Each entry is summarized in under a minute–using nothing more than two pages, 300 words, and one picture. Leading fashion experts provide an engrossing crash course in how the style world works today, alongside an engaging look at the founding fathers (and mothers) of fashion who set it up that way. Every aspect of the modern fashion industry is explored, from haute couture to high street, from catwalk to street style, and from glossy magazine to online blog. Some of the recurring themes behind fashion design are also explored, such as the influence of art, music and sport. Know-It-All Fashion includes everything you need to get style savvy.

In Know It All Fashion, the reader will find yet another complete knockout in the Know It All series. For me, it was my second (leading on from Know It All Anthropology which I read last month) and the one of the two that I found the most accessible and interesting, and one which works as a fantastic introduction for anyone who wants to learn a little - or lot - more about the world of fashion. Its images are modern and innovative, its designer biographies are inspiring, and the way that the book is set out lends itself to the reader being able to choose how in-depth they want their information to be and because of this, it is extremely easy to navigate.
Know It All Fashion is as chic as the people and clothes that it covers and I think that nobody would have any regrets about adding it to their collection. It would be a perfect purchase for those wanting to expand their knowledge on the subject, those starting fashion school, or those just wanting a book that looks pretty damn awesome sitting on their coffee table (flatlaying Instagrammers, you NEED this!).

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
