Women designers have made an immense contribution to our shared material culture and built environment. However, while several pioneers have achieved global recognition-Ray Eames, Florence Knoll Bassett, and Charlotte Perriand to name a few-there are others not so well known but equally influential to the history of design.

This book introduces the principal players in the areas of fashion, textiles, graphic and product design, and architecture from the last 100 years, and uncovers a history with women firmly at the center.

Featuring profiles on more than 100 women designers, each accompanied by an informative and authoritative text, and illustrated by iconic works, this book is an inspirational focus for all design students and practitioners.
