HOORAY! I can think of no book I’m more in the mood to page through in a leisurely fashion than this one right now! Let’s flip this over and read the back:

This book documents the most exciting and diverse period in fashion: from 1900 on, when women’s lives and manner of dress changed dramatically. From home dressmaking to couture, from wartime rationing to ‘The New Look’, from the birth of the teenager to mass manufacture, this selection of over 400 photographs and illustrations tells the fascinating story of a fashion revolution. 100 Years of Fashion will appeal to everyone with an interest in fashion.

Exactly what your coffee table NEEDS at the moment, no? (This also seems like it would make a great gift, if you’re getting a jump on holiday things.)

THE TASK:  We have five copies to give away, and as usual, I’ll be picking the winner at random. To enter, please comment and share which period in fashion history you most wish would come back into style today.
