True style transcends fashion. Style is innovation, creation, and inspiration—with a personal twist. But the ability to find such inspiration and blend it into a signature wardrobe is what sets real style makers apart.

In Style Book: Fashionable Inspirations, Walker juxtaposes more than 450 exhilarating images, from 1865 to the present and from street fashion to haute couture.
