Catch the pint-size stars and their acts on the covers and interiors of these Baby Circus journals by Jean Marie. Each journal has ruled pages and a ribbon marker. American photographer Jean Marie Reed came to her new-found role in the wonderful world of baby photography with great zeal and enthusiasm, in large measure because of her connection with and love of children. As a fashion photographer for the last eight years under her initials, J.M. Reed, she has worked internationally for such publications as Vogue, Harper¿s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Elle. She has been sought after to photograph notable film stars, Olympic athletes and politicians. Jean Marie began her journey in the fashion industry working for nine years in front of the camera, based in Paris. From those early experiences, she was able to develop a uniquely empathic and nurturing approach to conducting her photo sessions, which has now translated into stunning results both in the images she creates as well as the pleasurable and fun environment on the sets. The conceptualization and creation of Baby Circus has been an exciting and rewarding experience for Jean Marie. She has enjoyed every moment spent with the babies. "Each child is truly special, beautiful and unique," reflects Jean Maria. "The journey has been one of great faith, imagination and love. It has been a rare gift indeed.".

Book Description: Dover Publications, Inc., New York, 1974. 4to. 294pp., introduction, illustrated throughout with 1,000 black-and- white illustrations, glossary. After the Civil War the upper middle class in America expanded and became increasingly style-conscious. Visiting European royalty as well as American women returning from the 1867 International Exhibition in Paris stimulated fashion awareness - and it was in this climate that the magazine Harper's Bazaar flowered. Dedicated to being 'A Repository of Fashion, Pleasure, and Instruction,' it brought to American women inside glimpses of the very latest European and American fashions, all in carefully detailed engravings. It was much the finest source for high fashion for this period. This book consists of the finest illustrations from Harper's Bazar between 1867 and 1898, the period of its peak importance. These illustartions not only show you what apparel appealed to our Victorian ancestors, but give you an idea of the evolutionary nature of fashion as well. You will see bustles come and go, and natural forms become superceded by the constricting hourglass figure. Each look is illustrated with a number of different garments. There are gowns for the morning hours, dinner dresses, sporting and traveling clothes, and apparel for weddings, mourning, etc. Since no costume was complete without accessories, a full line of hats, fans, parasols, muffs, gloves, handkerchiefs, jewelry, shoes and hair styles is shown as well. Please note: Oversized volume: this book will require additional shipping for destinations outside the US. Please write for details; we will ship at cost. Large trade paperback. Light edgewear. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 71461

Book Description: VINTAGE, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland, who wrote like an angel, and looked like a fashion model, but became homeless in Manhattan in the 1970s and died forgotten in 1993. Born in Dublin in 1917 to politically active parents, Maeve Brennan s childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was Irish Minister throughout World War II. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper s Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell s words, to be around her was to see style being invented . Her richly textured fiction criticism and Talk of the Town pieces, published in the 1950s and 60s, during The New Yorker s most influential period, offer unsparing portraits of the Ireland she had left and the America she inhabited. As this richly researched and wide-ranging book makes clear, Maeve Brennan s effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.

Burns makes it abundantly clear . . . they just don t make heiresses like Millicent Rogers anymore. --Hampton Sides Nobody knew how to live the high life like Standard Oil heiress Millicent Rogers. Born to luxury, she lived in a whirl of European vacations, exquisite clothing, and dashing men. In Searching for Beauty, Cherie Burns chronicles Rogers s rebellious life from her days as a young girl afflicted with rheumatic fever to her final days as one of the legendary chatelaines of New Mexico. She eloped with a penniless baron; danced tangos in European nightclubs; romanced Roald Dahl, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, and Hollywood icon Clark Gable; and triumphed in the world of fashion. She was muse to legendary American designer Charles James, appeared in Vogue and Harper s Bazaar and popularized Southwestern style by adopting turquoise jewelry, squaw skirts and short-waist jackets as her signature look. With Searching for Beauty, Millicent Rogers enters the pantheon of great American women who, like Diana Vreeland and Babe Paley, put their distinctive stamp on American style.

Book Description: Duke University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 155 mm. Brand New Book. Since the 1990s, young Asian Americans including Doo-Ri Chung, Derek Lam, Thakoon Panichgul, Alexander Wang, and Jason Wu have emerged as leading fashion designers. They have won prestigious awards, been chosen to head major clothing labels, and had their designs featured in Vogue, Harper s Bazaar, and other fashion magazines. At the same time that these designers were rising to prominence, the fashion world was embracing Asian chic. During the 1990s, Asian shapes, fabrics, iconography, and colors filled couture runways and mass-market clothing racks. In The Beautiful Generation , Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu explores the role of Asian American designers in New York s fashion industry, paying particular attention to how they relate to the garment workers who produce their goods and to Asianness as a fashionable commodity. She draws on conversations with design students, fashion curators, and fashion publicists; interviews with nearly thirty Asian American designers who have their own labels; and time spent with those designers in their shops and studios, on their factory visits, and at their fashion shows. The Beautiful Generation links the rise of Asian American designers to historical patterns of immigration, racial formation, and globalized labor, and to familial and family-like connections between designers and sewers.

Book Description: Atria Books, New York, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. xiv, 559 pp., illus., biblio., index; 24 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Spine slightly rolled at the crown. Stated "First Atria Books hardcover edition, November 2005." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Carmel Snow, who changed the course of our culture by launching the careers of some of today's greatest figures in fashion and the arts, was one of the most extraordinary women of the twentieth century. As editor in chief of Harper's Bazaar from 1934 to 1958 she championed the concept of 'a well-dressed magazine for the well-dressed mind,' bringing cutting-edge art, fiction, photography, and reportage into the American home. Now comes A Dash of Daring, a first and definitive biography of this larger-than-life figure in publishing, art, and letters. Veteran magazine journalist Penelope Rowlands describes the remarkable places Snow frequented and the people whose lives she transformed, among them Richard Avedon, Diana Vreeland, Geoffrey Beene, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Cristobal Balenciaga, Lauren Bacall, and Truman Capote. She chronicles Snow's life on both sides of the Atlantic, beginning in nineteenth-century Ireland and continuing to Paris, Milan, and New York City, the fashion capitals of the world. Snow was the daughter of an Irish immigrant, who was herself a forward-thinking businesswoman, and she worked in her mother's custom dressmaking shop before being discovered by the magazine publisher Conde Nast and training under Edna Woolman Chase, the famous longtime editor of Vogue. From there it was on to Harper's Bazaar which, with the help of such key employees as Avedon, Vreeland, and art director Alexei Brodovitch, Snow turned into the most admired magazine of the century. Among the disparate talents who worked at Bazaar in the Snow era were Andy Warhol, the heiress Doris Duke, Maeve Brennan, and members of the storied Algonquin Round Table. Overflowing with previously untold stories of the colorful and glamorous, A Dash of Daring is a compelling portrait of the fashion world during a golden era. / Penelope Rowlands is a journalist who contributed to numerous magazines, including Vogue, Architectural Digest, W, The New York Times Magazine, and ARTnews from both the United States and France. She now lives in Princeton, New Jersey." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 053754

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2012. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 188 x 130 mm. Brand New. Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington s extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion s best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace s palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine s most memorable shoots. With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than forty years, Grace now creatively directs the listener through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy travelogues that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics. Grace will introduce listeners to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor--the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper s Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her thirty-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion. Includes a bonus PDF of photos from the book. If Wintour is the Pope . . . Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel twelve times a year. -- Time. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780449808061

As editor in chief of Harper s Bazaar from 1934 to 1958 she championed the concept of a well-dressed magazine for the well-dressed mind, bringing cutting-edge art, fiction, photography, and reportage into the American home. Now comes A Dash of Daring, a first and definitive biography of this larger-than-life figure in publishing, art, and letters. Veteran magazine journalist Penelope Rowlands describes the remarkable places Snow frequented and the people whose lives she transformed, among them Richard Avedon, Diana Vreeland, Geoffrey Beene, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Cristobal Balenciaga, Lauren Bacall, and Truman Capote. She chronicles Snow s life on both sides of the Atlantic, beginning in nineteenth-century Ireland and continuing to Paris, Milan, and New York City, the fashion capitals of the world. Snow was the daughter of an Irish immigrant, who was herself a forward-thinking businesswoman, and she worked in her mother s custom dressmaking shop before being discovered by the magazine publisher Conde Nast and training under Edna Woolman Chase, the famous longtime editor of Vogue. From there it was on to Harper s Bazaar which, with the help of such key employees as Avedon, Vreeland, and art director Alexei Brodovitch, Snow turned into the most admired magazine of the century. Among the disparate talents who worked at Bazaar in the Snow era were Andy Warhol, the heiress Doris Duke, Maeve Brennan, and members of the storied Algonquin Round Table. Overflowing with previously untold stories of the colorful and glamorous, A Dash of Daring is a compelling portrait of the fashion world during a golden era. Bookseller Inventory # AAB9780743480468

Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. Born into a family of privilege, Diana Dalziel Vreeland grew up amid the fashionable of New York s Upper East Side. With a famously alluring mother and a classically beautiful sister, young Diana often felt isolated and unloved. But she was saved from her unhappy childhood by her audacious imagination as well as the grit and determination that would shape her extraordinary life.Talent-spotted by legendary editor Carmel Snow in 1936, Diana joined Harper s Bazaar as a fashion editor, where her singular point of view and signature style quickly made her a major creative force in American fashion. Under her influence, American designers became chic during World War II, and with her pizzazz she inspired a raft of fashion talent on both sides of the Atlantic.Passed over as successor to Snow, Diana did the unthinkable and accepted the title of editor-in-chief of Bazaar s archrival, Vogue. In Diana s Vogue, women were not only offered shockingly short skirts and silver hipster pants: even more radically, they were encouraged to embrace the free spirit of the sixties, to resist fashion orders from on high, and to use their own imaginations in re-creating themselves. When Women s Wear Daily asked Diana, What is the function of a fashion magazine? she replied, To instruct when possible, to delight, to give pleasure, to bring to the reader what interests her. Everybody makes an appearance every day. In 1971 Diana was fired from Vogue. She reluctantly accepted a new position for herself at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as Special Consultant to the Costume Institute, only to reveal a new dimension to her brilliance. Her first show, on the work of designer Cristobal Balenciaga, drew more than 150,000 people to the museum, and the show that followed smashed all the record books. The Metropolitan was stunned, and today s blockbuster exhibition was born.In this first full-length biography of Diana Vreeland, Amanda Mackenzie Stuart portrays a visionary: a fearless innovator who inspired designers, models, photographers, and artists.Vreeland reinvented the way we think about style and where we go to find it. As an editor, curator, and wit, Diana Vreeland made a lasting mark and remains an icon for generations of fashion lovers. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780061691744

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2012. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 188 x 130 mm. Brand New. Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington s extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion s best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace s palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine s most memorable shoots. With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than forty years, Grace now creatively directs the listener through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy travelogues that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics. Grace will introduce listeners to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor--the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper s Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her thirty-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion. Includes a bonus PDF of photos from the book. If Wintour is the Pope . . . Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel twelve times a year. -- Time. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780449808061
