The Fashion Show tells the story of the haute couture catwalk, through an exclusive collection of VIP invitations. Spanning over 45 years and 300 shows, each invite opens a window into the key trends and ideas behind each collection.

Whether high romance at Givenchy, high-brow modernity at Alexander McQueen, floral grandeur at Valentino, vintage-inspired fun at Kenzo or emotion at Yves Saint Laurent's final show, the huge range of themes and styles that have graced the catwalk in the past 50 years are reflected in this book.

From simple presentation to melodramatic performance, this chic collection is your passport to the highlight of the fashion year.
