MODA 150 anni di stilisti designer atelier
Fashion is more than just a dress. It is a weapon of seduction, a business card, sometimes a springboard. In any case, it is always a sign of the times we live in. Since, in 1860, Charles Frederick Worth, an English designer based in Paris, had the idea of attaching a label with his signature to his models, clothes have become unique masterpieces and fashion an ephemeral and fascinating art. The designers have been elected to real legends and have tried, through their creations, to make their ideal of perfection and luxury a reality. From the avant-garde Paul Poiret to the pragmatic Coco Chanel, from the eccentric Vivienne Westwood to the master Valentino, passing through the creations of Dolce & Gabbana and Giorgio Armani, up to the chameleon-like Karl Lagerfeld and the brilliant Tom Ford, this volume can be considered an authentic bible of fashion that traces 150 years of history through the images and portraits of the most famous brands and stylists. A compendium of the history of fashion, which includes both the great legends, such as Valentino, and the witnesses who interpret the new trends for low-cost chains, accompanied by an illustration.
