Description - Fabulous Frocks NEW EDITION by Sarah Gristwood

A stunning celebration of the dress in the twentieth century. This is a new edition in a smaller format with affordable new price point and gorgeous new cover.

No item of clothing has endured for longer than the dress. Yet the last century alone has seen the most radical changes of style-hemlines swinging from ankle to thigh; outlines alternating between the body-hugging and the bell-and our fascination with the 'frock' has not gone away. From Gres' draping to Dior's New Look, from Mary Quant's mini to Hussein Chalayan's mechanical marvels, this book looks at the dress in twentieth century fashion. thematic chapters-Changes, Feminine, Sex, Must-haves, Fantasy, Classical and Art-set out the inspirations and implications for each new change alongside the stunning photography. It is more than eighty years since Coco Chanel invented the little black dress, but every woman still has one in her wardrobe today. It's decades since women discovered trousers and separates, but every woman dreams of wearing a glorious, glamorous gown at least once, whether it's on a Hollywood red carpet, or just on her wedding day. FABULOUS FROCKS is a book to fire a fashionista's imagination.
