About this title
In the years around World War I, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel challenged the world of fashion head on. Jersey knit fabrics, easy-to-wear garments based on men's sportswear, showy costume jewelry, and "the little black dress" are just a few of her innovations that have become fashion staples. In this lavishly illustrated book, for the first time the focus is on Chanel the couturière and her immense influence on the way women choose to look in the modern world.
Under the design stewardship of Karl Lagerfeld, the House of Chanel is today more relevant than ever, and in January 2010 Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky will be released nation-wide. As exciting as a front row seat at a couture show, Chanel: The Couturiere at Work is a compelling look at the fashion empire of one of the indisputable geniuses of twentieth century fashion.
Amy de la Haye is Assistant Curator in the Textiles and Dress Collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
