From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a century’s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limited-edition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum’s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.

In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museum’s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.

Each edition (a total of 11,000 copies) is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg and comes in a Plexiglas box.

Job hunting today can be rather competitive. Very rarely is a job opening available where you will be the only person applying, as predominantly hundreds may battle it out for the same position. Even if you are the person lucky enough to land the job, you may find that you are still not satisfied and yearn something more, something slightly out of the ordinary. Todd McLeod's book Online Jobs looks how people continue to explore new ways of making money from home as an additional income and they are making the right decision as there are so many opportunities just waiting to be tapped in to. Sitting at home and searching through the job section in your local newspaper simply won't cut it. All you really need is basic computer knowledge, a reliable internet connection, and the desire to earn cash from home at a pace you are comfortable with, either part time or full time.
