Book review: Groundbreaking Fashion

It brings method to madness.

Think of Jane Rocca as the mama bird and us, her chicks. Groundbreaking Fashion sees the journalist combine her wealth of fashion knowledge and regurgitate it for us in a format that’s easy to digest. 

Each spread covers one of 100 defining fashion moments or styles, complete with an original illustration and concise (yet illuminative) description. Its subject matter is broad, covering everything from Chanel’s first LBD to Yeezy Boosts.

Rocca brings method to what otherwise might be madness, with the book broken into five subcategories, including Frock ‘n’ Roll, befitting of the writer’s personal style.
