Leggi questo articolo in italiano


In Killer Fashion the author shows a series of episodes in which fashion caused also violent deaths: flammable dresses, toxic substances, strangling scarves are only some of the cases referred in the book.

All episodes are also represented by an illustration and a rhyme.

The text is more a collection of curiosities than a historical analysis: the episodes are brief and not very well examined.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
