Fashion Innovators
Biographies of nearly 200 individuals who had an innovative and influential impact on the development and evolution of the modern fashion industry. 

Highlighting the importance of fashion and design and its impact on social and cultural norms and trends over the hundred years, this brand-new title in the Innovators series profiles the most innovative and important individuals in fashion history.

This title profiles the most innovative and influential individuals in the development of fashion. From the post-World War II revival of haute couture to the "mash-up" style of the twenty-first century, the history of fashion is immeasurably rich, with milestones that have revolutionized our society. This new title examines those individuals most responsible for the design and production behind fashion today, from the designers to the models popularizing their designs.

Fashion Innovators features more than 180 biographies of individuals who have had a significant influence on the development of fashion, culminating with the styles of today that borrow from both hip-hop and unisex indie styles. The biographies represent a strong multi-ethnic, cross-gender focus, with accompanying sidebars describing the affiliation with which that individual is most often associated. Each of these extended biographies averages 3,000 words in length and offers concise and informative top matter that includes an introductory summary of the person's significance; birth and death dates and places; and specialty fields.

Innovators in Fashion spans two complete volumes, examining nearly 200 individuals and personalities who had an influential impact on the fashion industry, including: Giorgio Armani, Christie Brinkley, Naomi Campbell, Coco Chanel, Liz Claiborne, Cindy Crawford, Oscar de la Renta, Diddy, Christian Dior, Domenico Dolce, Farrah Fawcett, Stefano Gabbana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Tommy Hilfiger, Grace Jones, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Ashley Olsen, Miuccia Prada, Brooke Shields, Gianni Versace, and many more.
