Chow, fashion model and jewelry designer of the 1970s and 1980s, put together a collection of clothing by the great 20th-century designers that exemplifies the authors' desire to give fashion "credibility as a kind of object for collecting." With a discerning eye and sense of style, Chow gathered garments that strikingly demonstrate each designer's importance to the art of fashion; the photographs here illustrate their--and her--artistry. Published to accompany an exhibit held at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, the book has also become a posthumous tribute to the collector, who died of AIDS on January 24, 1992. Important for fashion, art, and photography collections.
