A beautifully illustrated book on the greatest era in women's fashion. Its numerous essays enlighten the reader on the skill, creativity, and strategy involved in creating and selling haute couture. Many of the outfits are breath-taking and so stylish that it becomes difficult to date them. A real escape and a pleasure to read. A good follow-up read is "Dior in Vogue" also available through the library system.
