Paris 1962 : Schatzberg : Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior : the early collections by Jerry Schatzberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jerry Schatzberg's stylish photographs capture the seductive glamour of French haute couture in it's prime. Fascinated by the rituals of fashion, his images and insights bring the once exclusive world of Parisian style, with all its feminine charms, vividly back to life. Although best known at the time for his celebrity portraits and fashion photos, Schatzberg's unique "street style" images impressed Esquire Magazine which hired him to shoot the Paris collections for a cheeky fashion photo spread titled The silken jungle. The photographs gathered in this book are taken from that assignment"--Page 152
Drawing fashion : the art of Kenneth Paul Block by Susan Mulcahy( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kenneth Paul Block was one of the most influential fashion illustrators of the twentieth century. His first job was at the powerful Women’s Wear Daily in the 1950s, an association that lasted over thirty years and where Kenneth witnessed and recorded one of the most important periods in fashion history—the postwar shift as the exclusive world of couture transformed into prêt-à-porter. Attending all the major fashion shows in Paris, London, and New York, Kenneth was the first one on the scene, drawing the latest style-setting clothes from such venerable houses as Balenciaga, Chanel, and Saint Laurent. He also documented the up and coming designers of the time, including Marc Jacobs, Perry Ellis, and Halston. He was well known in society, sketching Gloria Vanderbilt and the Duchess of Windsor. He reported on sensational parties in Palm Beach and New York attended by Babe Paley and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and created a unique archive of the era. Drawing Fashion: The Art of Kenneth Paul Block is the first monograph on the artist and brings together a lifetime of drawings, watercolors, and observations. Fashion illustration disappeared from publications as photography took over, giving added emphasis to this book as an important historical document. Drawing Fashion, designed by Shahid & Company, captures a critical moment in time when fashion, art, and commerce coincided."--Publisher's website

The ballet, created in 1965 at the Paris Opéra, has frequently been revived. Today, more than fifty years later, with its incisive language, lyrical and clear at the same time, with its poetic pas de deux and passionate trios, and with the staging that lends the crowd scenes such intense immediacy, Roland Petit's Notre-Dame de Paris has become a classic of the ballet repertoire

These two episodes of Designer Marathon present an in-depth look at the career of the French designer Yves Saint Laurent. Number 9 examines his early career, which began at the house of Dior in the mid 50s. Hailed by fashion historians as a true design genius--the King of Fashion--his innovations included see-through blouses, the tuxedo for women, and the inclusion of pants in haute couture. He was the first designer to use ethnic models in his runway shows, and referenced other non-European cultures in his work. Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring couture's rise from its sixties ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable. Number 10 examines the fate of the house of Saint-Laurent in the wake of St. Laurent's retirement in 2002. Many feared the house would crumble without the master at the helm, but a stellar lineup of designers has flourished in his wake. Starting with Alber Elbaz, then Tom Ford, and now Stefano Pilati, these designers have stayed true to the spirit of the house

Yves Saint Laurent style by Yves Saint Laurent( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yves Saint Laurent's signature design style intertwines references from the art world with those of popular culture and social revolution. Since its establishment in the Sixties by the designer and Pierre Bergé, the haute couture house has redefined femininity, creating arguably the most famous (and sexiest) suit for women, "Le Smoking" Tuxedo, and innovative collections such as Pop Art, Ballets Russes, and Picasso. This retrospective book is the first to cover forty years of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and highlights the inventive character of the designer's work. More than one hundred and sixty of the best designs and accessories, all taken from the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Collection, are presented in photographs and numerous sketches by Yves Saint Laurent, published for the first time."--inside cover
