Book - 1999
Rate this:
The Victoria and Albert Museum's vast collection of textiles was mined for this selection of black dresses by the world's best known designers, with examples spanning 1910-1994. Each dress is reproduced on one full page (these measure 10x13.5"), with a facing page of commentary on the design, the designer, and the times. Mendes, the V and A's curator of textiles and dress, provides an introduction on the subject of the black dress that, like the catalog which follows, takes the reader through the world of fashion on this popular, recurring theme.
