Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You don't have to be a fashionista or a design aficionado to adore this fascinating look at the power of one dress to change society.


Join the Design Museum, the world's leading museum in contemporary design, on a guided tour of the 50 most important dresses in social history and design.

Filled with pages of beautiful clothes, and the famous faces (and bodies) that put them on the world stage -including Wallis Simpson, Jackie Kennedy, Twiggy and Cher and, of course, Princess Di-this fun volume shares fascinating appraisals of what gave the 50 most important garments their iconic status.



About the Author
