Fabulous Frocks : A celebration of dress design EPUB
This book contains everything you need to know about modern history of dress design, from the corset-free styles of 1920s flappers to the conceptual constructions of modern artists.
Since Coco Chanel invented the little black dress in 1926 it has become a staple for a woman's wardrobe. Even considering the many decades itâ€™s been since women discovered trousers and separates, women dream of wearing glorious, glamorous gowns, whether itâ€™s on the Hollywood red carpet, or perhaps on her wedding day...Â
No item of clothing has endured for longer than the dress. Yet the last century alone has seen the most radical changes of style â€“ hemlines swinging from ankle to thigh; outlines alternating between the body-hugging and the bell â€“ and our fascination with â€˜the frockâ€™ has not gone away.
From Gresâ€™ draping to Diorâ€™s New Look, from Mary Quantâ€™s mini to Hussein Chalayanâ€™s mechanical marvels and Kate Middletonâ€™s wedding dress, this book looks at the dress in a century of fashion. Thematic chapters set out the inspirations and implications for each new change in style alongside stunning photography. A celebration of the dress in all its forms, Fabulous Frocks is sure to fire any fashionistaâ€™s imagination.Â
