    Adorable book! Packaged well and came sealed new. Loved reading through this book! I ended up giving it to my friend in fashion school and she is obsessed with it!

    Found a couple errors in history, and would have selected some of the same and never would have thought of others...but it is a British production. Americans have a different perspective. One error was calling a famous actress Rita Hayward. We have Rita Hayworth and Susan Hayward. I think they meant Rita Hayworth. Also said the word "vintage" was not even invented in the 1960s. Come on! It's been used for a great many years! Perhaps they meant as relates to fashion ONLY. Still it's worth adding to the fashion library.

    Nicely designed piece of fluff with some iconic dresses, but most pictures unremarkable. Enjoyed reading through it once, but not enough there to look again. Would make a nice gift for a young person just getting into fashion.

    I was expecting a great coffee table book, and maybe provoke some discussion. It was ok. THere are some obvious ones in there, but they didn't really tell me WHY they changed the world. Was it fabric? DId it provoke social debate. For the older the entries (the flapper dress) yes they covered that, but I didn't see that in other entries.

    Meh. Very small book and it only goes to the mid 2000's. Thought it would be a fun book for my fashion conscious daughter but really was not a hit.
