Published in 1972, Paris Fashion is the first, complete, illustrated history of the French couture houses.

The complete story of the great Houses is fully documented and pictured, in colour and black and white illustrations. The book has light blue boards and silver titles and is in fine condition with only light surface colour wear to corners. The jacket has light general marks, and slight bumping creasing and wear along edges; corner and spine ends rubbed and slightly chipped; indentation scratch, approx. 1.6 cm, on the rear cover.
