2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) was the premier style arbiter of the 1930s - a favorite designer of women who made the best-dressed list, of female sports heroes, and of film and theater actresses. This book is the first comprehensive look at the work of this startling and innovative Paris fashion designer." "Shocking! explores the Italian-born designer's career from its modernist beginnings in the 1920s and its connections with Surrealism to the upheavals caused by war, the business struggles in the years that followed, and the closing of her salon in 1954." "With over three hundred reproductions of Schiaparelli clothing and accessories, this book includes the extensive group of objects given by the designer herself to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1969 as well as contemporary photographs documenting Schiaparelli's salons, homes, and designs: patent office drawings; fashion sketches; works by the period's leading fashion photographers such as Horst and Cecil Beaton; works of art that complemented, influenced, or were influenced by her designs; and stills from many of the American, British, and French films and plays with which she was associated."--Jacket

Vogue on Elsa Schiaparelli by Judith Watt( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vogue called Elsa Schiaparelli a genius 'madder and more original' than her contemporaries, championing and illustrating her designs from the first picture of the revolutionary 'Bow Knot' sweater in 1927 through to the Surrealist "Tear dress' and 'Shoe hat' of the late 1930s. A true original, collaborating with artists such as Salvador Dali, she made trompe l'oeil images, dresses with skeletal forms, perfume bottles in the shape of Mae West's torso, and pioneered the use of man-made fabrics. Vogue on Elsa Schiaparelli presents the enduring legacy of this daring and visionary designer." --Inside jacket
