9780785810933: Catwalking: A History of the Fashion Model

Whereas the first models to grace the catwalks were hired from the ranks of seamstresses and paid wages on par with floorsweepers, the model turned supermodel of the 80s and 90s has become the ultimate dream of self-made success.Catwalking is a stunning look at the world of the fashion industry and modelling, illustrated with a wealth of rare photographs and graphic material.

Book Description:

A stunningly illustrated account of fashion modeling through the ages, Catwalking -- with a wealth of rare photographs and graphic material -- looks at the changing roles of the fashion model over nearly eighty years, from the days of the debutante mannequins to today's supermodels and their successors.

This tribute to beauty and fashion includes:
-- Society ladies and couturiers
-- Fashion photographers Baron De Meyer, Louise Dahl Wolfe, Man Ray and more
-- The Golden Years of Haute Couture
-- Modeling stars of the sixties and seventies
-- Supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Yasmeen Ghauri and others

From mannequins to superbabes, in front of the camera and behind the scenes, here is a spectacular celebration of eight decades of the glittering, but not always glamorous, world of the fashion model.
