The book contains close to one hundred photographs that clarify and enrich the text ... the book is a highly selective but stimulating and readable analysis of how social changes in particular areas of a major city, refracted through the lens of creative talent, transformed the character and meaning of fashionable appearance during the twentieth century. Diana Crane, The Historian a dizzying escapade through moments and experiences of fashionability in the capital ... wide-ranging and theoretically sophisticated ... both inspirational and provocative and should be of interest to anyone interested in the history of either British fashion or the cultural geography of London. Journal of British Studies Alistair O'Neill's London - after a Fashion is a beautifully written and researched analysis of how everything effects everything else. There are fine chapters on Soho in the 50's, Francis Bacon and the great and seminal British Surrealist Exhibition of 1936. Fascinating stuff. -- George Melly A quirky and original contribution to the burgeoning literature on cultural and fashionable London, London - after a Fashion develops a fresh perspective through the unexpected lenses of tattooing, surrealist hats and 1980s chintz, among other things and the result is both entertaining and scholarly. -- Elizabeth Wilson
