UPDATE: I love this book so much that I have it in both the hardcover and paperback versions (I currently have the paperback on loan to a coworker who's also a fashion-history enthusiast), and recently got a replacement for my original hardcover copy, which unfortunately had sustained water damage. It may have started out as an exhibition catalogue, but it's a foundational book that should be in the library of any student of 20th-century fashion.
This is a must have for New Look enthusiasts and fashionistas alike.
The book is a beautiful coffee table book for anyone interesed in fashion particularly Paris and London during the years 1947-1957. The classic designs of this era and their designers are featured along with gorgeous photos. There is even a photo of a Dior gown as it was originally on a model. This same gown in later years was shortened and altered to suit the time and is on display in the Dior exhibit. Seeing it as it was intended by Dior is priceless!
A must for all interested in classic fashion!
