Описание: Fashions from the 1940s rank among the most popular and most influential in modern times. In vogue again today, these classic designs -- characterized by wide, padded shoulders and slim silhouettes -- were born, largely, from the need to conserve materials during World War II. With the war's end, designers rejected the austere conditions imposed on them earlier in the decade and the New Look was inaugurated -- an ultra-feminine line that displayed close-fitting bodices and long, full skirts. For this modestly priced paper doll collection, noted illustrator and fashion authority Tom Tierney has painstakingly researched and meticulously re-created in full color the trend-setting styles of the 1940s. Two dolls and 32 lavish outfits for evening and day wear include Schiaparelli's dark blue wool suit accented with large gold buttons; an Adrian cocktail dress in crepe, with a hand-painted golden-rope motif; a four-tiered wool dress by Germaine Monteil; an elegant wedding gown of starched white muslin and white eyelet embroidery from Henri Bendel; Hattie Carnegie's dinner pajamas -- a bespangled floral print accented with a wide sash in violent pink; and a magnificent black taffeta evening coat worn over a short lace evening dress -- both by Balenciaga. Also shown are stunning designs by Jo Copeland, Jeanne Lanvin, Mainbocher, Dior, Norman Norell, Adele Simpson, Mollie Parnis, Muriel King, Pierre Balmain, Maurice Rentner, Edward Molyneux, Omar Kiam, Robert Piguet, and Jacques Fath. Descriptions are included for the outfits, while notes offer background information on the designers and their creations. A unique collection that paper doll fanciers will find especially captivating, Great Fashion Designs of the Forties Paper Dolls will also appeal to designers, nostalgia buffs, costume historians, and anyone interested in the timeless fashions of a memorable decade.
Описание: As an early-20th-century English artist with an interest in historical subjects, Talbot Hughes began collecting clothing for accuracy in his paintings -- and the pursuit grew into a labor of love. His magnificent costume collection was eventually displayed in Harrod's and has become a permanent part of the collection of the venerable Victoria and Albert Museum in London. In this well-researched guide, Hughes traces the evolution of English fashions from the grass-cloth wraps of prehistoric times to the luxurious gowns of the Victorian era. Arranged chronologically and by British reigns, this splendid compilation includes over 300 illustrations of period fashions for men and women and 94 photos of historic garments. Pictured are tunics and tights from the thirteenth century, Elizabethan gowns with starched ruff collars, Charles I cavaliers with lace-collared jackets and breeches, a five-century array of boots and shoes, an assortment of elaborate wigs, embroidered waistcoats, quilted petticoats, plumed headdresses, and other dashing designs of the past. More than a history of British style, it's also a dressmaker's delight, with scaled-down patterns for 67 authentic costumes -- and a perfect reference for fashion designers, stylists, and historians.
Описание: Over 400 striking fashion designs from rare issues of Godey’s Lady’s Book (1837-1869)—the most influential women’s magazine of the period. Introduction and captions. 435 designs, 42 in full color.
