Karl Lagerfeld drew inspiration from the dystopian vision of Metropolis. The picture-perfect worlds of Wes Anderson's films echo in Miuccia Prada's collections. From historical epics and romantic dramas to sci-fi blockbusters and arthouse cool, the world's most creative fashion designers have long taken their inspiration from screen idols - and continue to do so today. Let fashion historian Amber Butchart take you a journey through the last 100 years of cinema style and its influence on the catwalks, and see how the fashion of film has transformed the world of fashion design. Sumptuously illustrated with photographs of fashion creations and the films that inspired them, The Fashion of Film is a must-have for any fan of style.
