Vogue The Gown
In Vogue: The Gown, Jo Ellison has gathered more than 300 images and grouped them into five thematic chapters: Classical, Fantasy, Drama, Decorative and Modern.
The book provides an evocative celebration of almost a century of fashion history, showcasing the work of photographers including Tim Walker, Nick Knight, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Corinne Day, Cecil Beaton and Horst.
Something about a gown's intrinsic construction, unashamed opulence and sheer feminine romance ignites in us the promise of fairy-tale adventure and unparalleled glamour. The magical gowns featured here give full reign to those fantasies, be they the sublime yet simple classical creations of Madame Gr#65533;s, the heavenly bodies sculpted by Azzedine Ala#65533;a, the lean, seductive lines of a Deco-inspired silhouette or huge tulle poufs fit for a princess.
Now available in a new format with a luxurious real cloth cover, at a more pocket-friendly price of #65533;30, this is essential reading for fashionistas everywhere.
