Description - Designer Fabrics of the Early '60s by Tina Skinner

Take a tour of the top couture fabric design houses of Paris during the early 1960s. This visual feast explores more than 250 exemplary designs in full-color photographs of fabric swatches. Explore a multitude of styles, ranging from playful geometrics to novelty prints and from abstract experimentation to the increasingly far-out florals that would mark the decade. Beautifully detailed shots present a close look at the cream of the early 1960s crop from Paris's best couture houses. Each fabric sample illustrated lists the date of publication, as well as the fabric content when known. A special section explores upholstery and household fabrics of the era. In all, this is a comprehensive guide and an indispensable aid for both designers and students.
