FASHION DESIGNERS A-Z
From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga and Coco Chanel to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Vivienne Westwood; This new edition of Fashion Designers AZ pays tribute to the most outstanding couturiers of the 20th and 21st centuries included in the permanent collection of the Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. 15 new firms join the ranks of the most outstanding designers of the industry - most notably Phoebe Philo, Patrick Kelly and Sonia Rykiel? in this updated and expanded volume that shows more than 500 garments from the Museum's permanent collection. From an exquisitely embroidered velvet evening dress to minimalist chic in the purest Mondrian style, the pieces have not only been selected and photographed for their beauty but for their symbolic value, as they encapsulate the unique philosophy and aesthetics of each of the designers of this book.
