Fashion encompasses more than the latest skirt length, the newest colours or the most up-to-date accessories. Image, individuality, group identity and countless other facets also play a role. And fashion is no longer only prescribed by the catwalk - what happens on the street is just as important. Fashion is a mirror of society and reveals its social connections. The Power of Fashion uses word and image to explain how fashion is interwoven into every facet of society. A thread running through the book is formed by prominent designers, a colourful, innovative sampling of what fashion now has to offer.
