The fashion world has long been celebrated for its scintillating salon wit. The sharpest tongues and quickest repartee have always sprung from the lips of fashion royalty. From Oscar Wilde to Miuccia Prada, fashion's words of wisdom have become our daily bread. Fashion Quotes presents hundreds of the snappiest quotations from over three centuries, from the society beaux of the 18th century and the literary wits of the 19th century, to the celebrity elite of the 20th century and today's hippest twitterati. Christian Lacroix has gilded the pages with creative inspiration, his illustrations perfectly expressing the colour and panache that we expect of fashion's finest. The collection is divided into quotations from different spheres, including: Elegance, Shoes, Dressing up, The Little Black Dress, Dandyism, Eros, Eccentricity, Models, Vanity. Fashion Quotes will be the must-have gift for every fashionista and aspiring wit, or for anyone looking for the ultimate smart put-down, cheeky pick-me-up, whip-crack wisdom or poisonous punchline.
