The Colour of Fashion: The Story of Clothes in 10 Colours

Telling stories drawn from across history, this gloriously illustrated book delves into the significance of colour in dress, and explores how the symbolism has shifted over time. Essential reading for fashion lovers.


The story of fashion is woven through with colour.

Vividly illustrated and compellingly written, The Colour of Fashion uncovers the colourful history of style, through 10 shades and their key moments in the spotlight – including Beyoncé in empowering yellow chiffon, Valentino’s signature red gowns, and Audrey Hepburn in that Little Black Dress – and shows that colour means so much more than meets the eye.

I’ve been a client of Isy’s since lockdown 2020, and I’ve found her to be incredibly approachable and supportive. In the course of two years, she’s negotiated seven book deals for me, and I know that she’s on my side when it comes to negotiations. I also find it reassuring that she keeps me informed on the latest on my projects. Finding Isy and Creative Authors has been really beneficial to my writing career!
