Vividly illustrated and compellingly written, The Colour of Fashion uncovers the colourful history of style, through 10 shades and their key moments in the spotlight – including Beyoncé in empowering yellow chiffon, Valentino’s signature red gowns, and Audrey Hepburn in that Little Black Dress – and shows that colour means so much more than meets the eye.

Telling stories drawn from across history, this gloriously illustrated book delves into the significance of colour in dress, and explores how the symbolism has shifted over time. Essential reading for fashion lovers.
