Fashion Forward: 300 Years of Fashion. Hardcover – April 11, 2017 by (Author), (Author), (Author), (Author)
"Tracing the evolution of fashion—from the opulence of the court of Louis XV to the catwalk couture of today—this stunningly illustrated volume charts three centuries of fashion trends and innovations.
This handsome volume is published to accompany a major exhibition that chronicles fashion from the seventeenth century to the present.
Featuring three hundred iconic pieces, it highlights key moments in fashion history and provides new insight into the designers, patrons, and groundbreaking techniques and materials. It also explores how fashion has always been intertwined with both fine art and the decorative arts.
Many of the great couturiers were known for this artistic cross-pollination, including such towering figures as Jeanne Lanvin, Madeleine Vionnet, Gabrielle Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Re-created here are a number of fashion inflection points illustrating fashion’s elective affinities with other disciplines. Eighteenth-century wood paneling, scenic wallpapers by Zuber, and Paul Iribe’s drawings for Paul Poiret, among other examples, provide perfect settings for fashion’s stylistic metamorphoses culminating in the effervescence and eclecticism of today’s global fashion scene.” (Förlagsinfo)
"This beautifully illustrated new edition of Paris Fashion examines the history and culture of style in the fashion capital from the 14th century through to the present day.
Paris has been the international capital of fashion for more than 300 years. Even before the rise of the haute couture, Parisians were notorious for their obsession with fashion, and foreigners eagerly followed their lead.
From Charles Frederick Worth to Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent, fashion history is dominated by the names of Parisian couturiers. But Valerie Steele's Paris Fashion is much more than just a history of great designers. This fascinating book demonstrates that the success of Paris ultimately rests on the strength of its fashion culture – created by a host of fashion performers and spectators, including actresses, dandies, milliners, artists, and writers.
First published in 1988 to great international acclaim, this pioneering book has now been completely revised and brought up to date, encompassing the rise of fashion's multiple world cities in the 21st century. Lavishly illustrated, deeply learned, and elegantly written, Valerie Steele's masterwork explores with brilliance and flair why Paris remains the capital of fashion.” (Förlagsinfo)
