The Hidden Facts of Fashion is not just a book of random facts – it’s a combination of fashion, fun, surprise, knowledge, and helpful hacks.
Brought to life with photographs and illustrations, The Hidden Facts of Fashion will enrich your fashion knowledge across 80 different topics, revealing phenomena, unexpected history, fun stories and more.
Considering I have spent the last year at home in my pyjamas or jogging bottoms, I have a growing interest in fashion and its history. I don’t follow trends and definitely choose comfort over style, but that doesn’t mean I’m not fascinated in how these trends started.
There are positives and negatives about this book. If you’re looking for a lighthearted and fun look into the history of clothes, an attractive book to adorn your coffee table with, then go for it.
If you are looking for a series reference book that could help you with a career in fashion, then avoid.
I have had a number of Fashionary products in the past and they have always been really valuable, full of facts and substance to help you with your fashion knowledge – whether you want to make a career out of it or it’s just a hobby. Their previous works are very much geared towards people taking fashion seriously, whereas this one definitely seems more…the word ‘immature’ comes to mind.
Having said all that, I wasn’t overly disappointed with the book. It was easy to read and I found some of the facts quite surprising and it’s willed me on to find out more.
