Fashion DesignersBook - 2001
Artistry and social history merge in this study of the fabulous fashions of the second half of the 20th century and the influential designers who created them. Spotlighting 35 international fashion greats - among them Chanel, Dior, Armani, Rykiel - an industry insider traces the development of women's fashions in the modern era, from 1945 to 2000. The work outlines the social climate that fostered each trend and helped define who we are or want to be, as expressed by the clothes we wear. There are pictures, anecdotes, facts and insights, along with photographs and designers' drawings.
