Spectres : when fashion turns back by Judith Clark( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to coincide with the groundbreaking exhibition, Malign Muses, initiated by ModeMuseum, Antwerp, and later on view under the title Spectres in the Victoria and Albert Museum's Contemporary Space." "As both curator and exhibition designer, Judith Clark addresses the relationship of contemporary fashion to history, creating a collage of visual references which offer a fascinating insight into the origins of current themes, such as alienation, trauma and phantasmagoria. Details of historic dress and images of nineteenth-century fairground architecture lead into the work of contemporary designers such as Victor & Rolf, Maison Martin Margiela, Veronique Branquinho, Hussein Chalayan, Christian Lacroix and Shelly Fox. The ideas for the installation draw on a skeletal early industrial/metropolitan aesthetic, while the mannequins belong to the history of dolls and wax effigies, embodied in the mask-like catwalk make-up of Pat McGrath."--Jacket

Madame Grès : sculptural fashion by Alix Grès( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanies an exhibition at the MoMu Fashion Museum, Province of Antwerp from September - February 2013. A remarkable couturier, with a career spanning half a century, Madame Alix Grès (1903-1993) was known for using delicate pleats which turned ordinary fabric into Grecian-style. This is the first monograph of her extraordinary work. Madame Grès launched her design house under the name Grès in Paris in 1942. Formally trained as a sculptress, she produced haute couture designs for an array of fashionable women, including the Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Dolores del Rio. Her signature was cut-outs on gowns that made exposed skin part of the design, yet still had a classical, sophisticated feel. She was renowned for being the last of the haute couture houses to establish a ready-to-wear line

Margiela : the Hermès years by Martin Margiela( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows the influence of Martin Margiela on the French luxury house and fashion label Hermes during the key years (1998-2003). At the end of the nineties, Margiela introduced a new concept of luxury that focused on tactility and comfort. His new fashion concept was very different from the work he did for his own Maison Martin Margiela, but it's also an expression of his artistic DNA. This book uncovers the symbiosis between both worlds. 0Exhibition: Modemuseum, Antwerp, Belgium (31.03.-270.08.2017)
Een leven in mode : vrouwenkleding 1750-1950 : uit de collectie Jacoba de Jonge = Living fashion : women's daily wear, 1750-1950 : from the Jacoba de Jonge Collection by Jacoba de Jonge( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit boek zoomt in op twee eeuwen Europese vrouwenkleding in de collectie van de Nederlandse verzamelaarster Jacoba de Jonge. Haar collectie bestaat uit zowat 2500 stuks en werd onlangs overgedragen aan het Antwerpse ModeMuseum. Aan de hand van thema's als zwangerschaps-, sport-, binnenhuiskleding, maskerade, winkelen en reizen schetst ze een beeld van de dagelijks gedragen kleding van de burgervrouw. Zo weerspiegelt de collectie de veranderende gewoontes van de middenklasse wiens dagindeling eveneens aan mode onderhevig was. De kleding vertelt het verhaal van twee eeuwen maatschappelijke veranderingen: de vrouw uit de middenklasse volgde niet alleen de mode, maar gaf deze ook mee vorm door haar kledij zodanig aan te passen dat deze beter aansloot bij haar leven. Via detailfoto's en anekdotes van de draagsters ontsluiert deze kleding tevens het verhaal van de verzamelaarster, wier leven in mode de aanleiding was voor dit boek
Dream suits : the wonderful world of Nudie Cohn by Mairi MacKenzie( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally a designer of highly embellished g-strings for New York strippers, Ukranian-born Nudie Cohn moved to Hollywood in 1947 and originated the rhinestone cowboy look that has become visual shorthand for Country & Western style. His fantastical, intricately embroidered and heavily ornamented outfits adorned the backs of numerous music and film stars, including Elvis Presley, Gram Parsons, Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, Roy Rogers, John Wayne, Elton John, Cher, John Lennon, Steve McQueen, Johnny Cash, and Bobbejaan Schoepen. Today his work is still sought after and admired. Contemporary musicians such as Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream, Mike Mills from R.E.M. and Beck, fashion photographers such as Craig McDean and fashion designers from Tommy Hilfiger to Ralph Lauren have been inspired by his incredible designs. The pieces illustrated in the book have been drawn from the personal collection of iconic Belgian entertainer Bobbejaan Schoepen and his wife Josée. Bobbejaan Schoepen was a lifelong client and collector of Nudie Cohn designs. This resulted in a close friendship between the two men, and an exceptionally large and well-preserved collection of Nudie designs. This book celebrates both Nudie's very particular aesthetic as well as the relationship between these extraordinary men"--Publisher's web site

"The Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp is undoubtedly one of the world's most prestigious fashion design schools. The Fashion Department, dedicated to fashion and theatre costume design was, founded 50 years ago by Mary Prijot. From the 1980s, under the inspired leadership of Linda Loppa and Walter Van Beirendonck, respectively, the school underwent unprecedented internationalisation and professionalisation. The generation of Martin Margiela and the Antwerp Six - Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs, Walter Van Beirendonck and Marina Yee - played a crucial role in this process. This book takes a closer look at the 50-year history of the Antwerp Fashion Department, its exceptional educational methodology, the annual year-end fashion shows and the work of its various generations of graduates, including such resounding names as Veronique Branquinho, An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx (A.F. Vandevorst), Bernhard Willhelm, Peter Philips, Olivier Rizzo, Bruno Pieters, Kris Van Assche, Christian Wijnants, Peter Pilotto and Haider Ackermann, many of whom grew to become internationally admired designers, stylists, art directors or makeup artists, or to fill in fluential positions for or behind the scenes of the renowned fashion houses"--Back cover
