Apologies in advance for the poor quality - the only thing worse than my scanner is my camera.
50 Contemporary Fashion Designers
The book has two pages devoted to each designer, with a short synopsis of their career on the right and a design on the facing page.
Most of the writing seemed as if it was submitted by the PR team for the designer, but there were a few photos I'd not seen before. If you needed a gift to give to a friend with a budding interest in the fashion world as it exists today, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. A decent, if very shallow, primer to the field.
Less is More
Walker's book is a far more thorough work, closer to an illustrated history of minimalism through the 20th and early 21st Century than something to leaf through. Personally, I enjoyed it more for the prose than the photos. Very lucid, well-researched and cited, and just an excellent book altogether.
