The Glass of Fashion is 'A personal history of fifty years of changing tastes and the people who have inspired them'. Beaton, with his wit and perfectly turned phrases, ensures that this is no dry history of early twentieth century fashion. It is a lively look at the vivid characters who have influenced the style of the time, the designers and the tastemakers, including Schiaparelli, Chanel, Dior, Diaghilev, Lady Diana Cooper, Syrie Maugham, Audrey Hepburn, Diana Vreeland, Christian Berard and many more. The text is accompanied by Beaton's own drawings and photographs.
