I love researching and learning about fashion, and I was wondering if any of you guys could recommend some good books for me? I'm interested in everything - designers, photographers, fashion trends of previous eras, magazine archives, technical aspects of designing clothes, etc.

A pretty neat book I've read recently is 101 Things I Learned In Fashion School by Alfredo Cabrera. It's cute, compact, and concise. I finished the whole thing in about an hour and a half. It had advice on how to design clothes and a lot of interesting tidbits I didn't know, and I recommend it to everyone who wears clothes.
