From the glamour and quiet brilliance of Christian Dior's New Look to the inventiveness of Rei Kawakubo to the uncompromising creativity of Alexander McQueen to the meticulous detail of the Mulleavy sisters (Rodarte), 'A History of Fashion: New Look to Now' is a celebration of the life and times of the fashion geniuses whose rare and enduring creations have defined the past sixty years. This book traces the history of fashion design with its intriguing personalities and its international cast of players and puts them into the context of what was happening in the world outside fashion. Covering haute couture to the emergence of deluxe, boutique and ready-to-wear, 'A History of Fashion: New Look to Now' illustrates the trends in fashion over the decades and the well worn truth that what goes around comes around.
It covers not only the designers, but also the other forces in fashion such as the magazine editors, boutique owners, photographers and models. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, illustrations of the time and contemporary magazine campaigns as well as sketches, this book will provide both industry professionals and enthusiasts alike with a clear and precise picture of the ever changing world of fashion and a true insight into the craft of the dedicated designers whose immense talent continues to enrich, entertain and enhance the world in which we live.
