With a gorgeous new cover, this extensively illustrated book is a celebration of the V&A''s magnificent collection of 20th-century fashion. The latest title in the highly successful Fashion in Detail series, this book offers a detailed look at some of the most stunning garments in the collection. In meticulous detail, the book features line drawings of each garment''s structure and specially commissioned close-up photographs of each item''s most impressive aspects: fastenings, necklines, cuffs, hemlines, fringes, and more. Arranged thematically, the authors provide information about everything from seams, buttons and collars, to beads, tucks, and pleats. The result is a visual banquet of textures, patterns, and craftsmanship and an eye-opening testament to the variety and creativity of modern dress. An essential visual reference for designers, students, and fashionistas everywhere.
Valerie D. Mendes is a fashion and textiles historian who became Chief Curator of the former Textiles and Dress Department at the V&A. Claire Wilcox is a leading expert in contemporary fashion who has curated several V&A exhibitions.
