A century of fashion by François Baudot( Book )

34 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1999 and now fully revised and updated, Fashion is a photographic celebration that surveys all the preeminent couturiers and fashion houses from the era before the Great War through the revolutionary changes wrought by the Jazz Age and the Swinging Sixties to designers at work today. Everything is included in this authoritative volume, from Channel's little black dress to the latest Prada or envelope-pushing boutiques. What distinguishes Fashion from other overviews or histories of the subject is that it also examines the ancillary driving forces that have propelled fashion trends and fueled the rise of styles. In many ways, this book makes clear that these supposedly secondary influences (fashion editors, advertising, newspapers, magazines, department stores, boutiques) became increasingly important during the course of the twentieth century. Included in the book are overviews of key figures in the fashion industry and design community

Fashion & surrealism by François Baudot( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in French and English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fashion and the Surrealist movement have had numerous affinities from the outset of the latter. "Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all," André Breton declared in the thirties, a maxim that could serve as a motto for the world of haute couture. And fashion, the stuff of its creators' dreams, often is surreal in the true sense of the word: a shoe turned into a woman's hat, a glove with claw-like gold fingernails, a lobster dress... The Surrealists picked bourgeois fashion apart at the seams and gave it a taste for scandale. Today, the genius of Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and René Magritte continues to influence great coutiers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and Serge Lutens

Vienna 1900 : the Viennese secession by François Baudot( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the start of the 20th century, more than fifty artists gathered in Vienna with varying ideas but a common determination: to be free of the bourgeois morality and its obsolete traditions. The Vienna Secession, founded in 1897, would shape a distinctive form of art in Vienna and all over the world. Gustav Klimt, Richard Strauss, Otto Wagner, Sigmund Freud, Egon Schiele, and others all sought ways to break with the classicism of the Austro-Hungarian Empire on its decline. In his atmosphere of artistic, intellectual, and political effervescence, a new world was born."--Publisher's website
