Ads of The 20th Century: Book Review

After a long hard day at university, I love delving into my fashion book collection and being tucked up in bed skimming through the pages. Whilst shopping in Waterstone's a few days ago, this little book caught my attention and although I'm on a spending ban, my partner told me I had to buy it. 

This wonderful hardback book is by Heinmann Nieda and it collates some of the best fashion advertorials of the 20th century, coupled with famous quotes on the fashion industry. The book documents 365 days of the year and is supposed to be read like a diary. Simply pick the day you're on or even look at your birthday and you will see a fashion ad and a quote to give you daily inspiration.

" Fashions fade, style is eternal" Yves Saint Laurent 

"If you can't be elegant, at least be extravagant" Franco Moschino 

"They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes" - Imelda Marcos 

The book cost me £17.99 and I think it's a fantastic price. Glossy pages full of amazing photography, bound with beautiful red fabric and 365 pages of pure fashion heaven. I know exactly which book I'll be reading in bed tonight.

What's your favourite fashion book?
