Lo, and the Sex and the City girls. The stiletto has also attracted the world's greatest designers, from Vivier, Perugia, and Ferragamo in the 1950s to Vivienne Westwood and Terry de Havilland in the 1970s, and the must-have designer labels of today - Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Gina, and Christian Louboutin.

Dress and Undress: A History of Women's Underwear, Elizabeth Ewing
3 Elizabeth Ewing Dress and Undress: A History of Women's Underwear
B. T. Batsford 236026 London 1978 0713416297 / 9780713416299 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Underwear, however functional it may or may not be, is the basis on which the silhouette of fashion is formed and is, moreover, increasingly an erotic element in its own right. Elizabeth Ewing describes the underwear of each period from 3000 BC and the manner in which it evolved. But, just as important, she explains the reasons for the changes and names the individuals who were themselves the agents of change. The Empress Eugénie, Worth, Lady Duff Gordon, Paul Poiret and Caresse Crosby all had their influence, and so in different ways had Dr Jaeger, Mrs Bloomer and, more recently, Marks and Spencer and Janet Reger. No less important have been such technical innovations such as the introduction of rayon, rubber, nylon, Lastex, Lycra and the zip fastener. The illustrations chosen here are pertinent, plentiful, and often unfamiliar. Some are from original drawings by Jean Webber; others from old and new paintings, photographs and prints, while many of the most diverting are from the catalogues and advertisements of stores and manufacturers covering the last 120 years. Now appearing in paperback for the first time, Dress and Undress will not only be invaluable for students of costume history and fashion design but will also appeal to the general reader fascinated by the intricacies of costume and its development. 191 pages.

Fashion, Italian Style, Valerie Steele
15 Valerie Steele Fashion, Italian Style
Yale University Press 227271 USA 2003 0300100140 / 9780300100143 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Italian fashion, which encompasses designers and companies from Armani to Zegna, has become a dominant force in the fashion world. This work discusses the rise of Italian fashion since 1945, the development of the Italian "look" from the late 1970s to the present, and the many great designers who have contributed to Italy's fashion triumphs. Valerie Steele describes how Florence, Rome, and later Milan all became important fashion centres and how other Italian cities play specific roles within the country's fashion system. She explains the tradition of "classic" men's tailoring, the importance of accessories, the special connection between textile production and fashion, and the reasons why different regions of Italy specialise in different fabrics or goods. She also analyses the integration of the various sectors of the fashion industry, a uniquely Italian model quite different from those found in France, Britain or the United States. Illustrated with photographs of fashion ensembles, runway shots, advertising images and more, this is a celebration of Italian fashion in its many guises. 131 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Fashion & Beauty; Fashion, Fabrics & Style; ISBN: 0300100140. ISBN/EAN: 9780300100143. Inventory No: 227271. Hardcover
