A new Thames & Hudson book hits the shelves today called Fashion Makers, Fashion Shapers - The Essential Guide to Fashion by Those in the Know. We are told that it's the inside story of everything that makes the fashion world tick. Judging by the slightly bizarre choice of people and brands featured in the book, we're not so sure that Those in the Know really know what they're on about. Nonetheless Vans have rightly been chosen as a fashion maker and, as you can see below, there's a cool history of the brand plus pictures of early ads which will thrill any Vans junkie. If you want to buy the book it costs £17.95 from all good bookshops, or check out thamesandhudson.com
