Fashion game changers : reinventing the 20th century silhouette by Karen van Godtsenhoven( Book )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fashion Game Changers traces radical innovations in Western fashion design from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Challenging the traditional silhouettes of their day, fashion designers such as Madeleine Vionnet and Cristóbal Balenciaga began to liberate the female body from the close-fitting hourglass forms which dominated European and American fashion, instead enveloping bodies in more autonomous garments which often took inspiration from beyond the West. As the century progressed, new generations of avant-garde designers from Rei Kawakubo to Martin Margiela further developed the ideas instigated by their predecessors to defy established notions of femininity in dress, creating space between body and garment. This way, a new relationship between body and dress emerged for the 21st century. With over 200 color images and commentaries from an international range of leading fashion curators and historians, this beautifully illustrated book showcases some of the most revolutionary silhouettes and innovative designs of over 100 years of fashion."--

10 editions published in 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1990's, Walter Van Beirendonck has been fascinated by masks. A mask changes your identity, raises a particular atmosphere and has instant impact.

Madame Grès : sculptural fashion by Alix Grès( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 87 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
Maison Martin Margiela : '20' the exhibition by Martin Margiela( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title documents an exhibition, held at the ModeMuseum Antwerpen [Antwerp Fashion Museum] in October 2008, to celebrate the 20 years of Maison Martin Margiela. This fashion house's whole oeuvre challenges conventional perceptions of authenticity, the body, the opposition between high and low fashion, and the role of the designer. Maison Martin Margiela's creations are to be read as constituting a continuum where ideas and concepts are taken to their extreme in order to push creative horizons; the designs are not bound to trends that change every season. This approach is the end product of a unique perspective, consistently followed through. No other house has had quite the same impact both on our conception of fashion and its underlying system, and on our views of fashion and history, craft, commerce, authorship and innovation

Fashion Antwerp Academy 50 by Sarah Heynssens( Book )

"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.

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

"This is the first intensive monograph on one of the most intriging Belgian fashion designers, Olivier Theyskens. From the raw emotion and dark romanticism of his early collections, to the new version of French elegance that he delineated at Rochas and Nina Ricci, and the contemporary American fashion at Theory: the evolution of Theyskens' métier runs parallel to the significant changes in the fashion industry at the dawn of the 21st century. Again and again, Theyskens' silhouettes and drawings reveal the hand of a master. Poetic voices surround the timeless images of the Theyskens universe. The Theyskins muse walks in beauty wherever she goes."--Page 4 of cover

Margiela : the Hermès years by Martin Margiela( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 12 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)
