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
Fashion, art & rock'n'roll : Jean-Charles de Castelbajac by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it's Beyoncé's wild blue jacket, Rihanna in a Donald Duck dress, or outfit queen Lady Gaga in a jacket with sewn-on Kermit the Frog puppets, they have all worn his creations and made them famous. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is a designer who knows how to dress women with courage and creativity. And for his somewhat unorthodox tastes, he has been nicknamed "King of the Unconventional." After developing a collection for his mother's fashion house in 1968, he started his own label in 1978. Since then, he has launched countless successful collections and struck up partnerships with the most unlikely people. Whether it's robes for the Pope, costumes for the Woody Allen film 'Annie Hall', or clothes for TV series such as 'Charlie's Angels' and 'Sex and the City'. For decades, de Castelbajac has been a style and fashion pioneer. Even better, he has always managed to fuse fashion with art, as evidenced by his partnerships with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Take a look behind the scenes at this fashion legend and learn about how this artist got his start and his ongoing history of success

Publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée du 25 mars au 24 juillet 2011 au musée Bourdelle à Paris.

La mode retrouvée : les robes trésors de la comtesse Greffulhe by Olivier Saillard( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage est publié à l'occasion de l'exposition éponyme présentée au Palais Galliera, Paris, du 7 novembre 2015 au 20 mars 2016. La comtesse Greffulhe (née Élisabeth de Riquet de Caraman-Chimay en 1860 et mariée au comte Henry Greffulhe en 1878) figure parmi les quelques personnalités qui ont inspiré à Marcel Proust la duchesse de Guermantes. Proche des disciplines artistiques (elle favorisa notamment la venue des Ballets russes à Paris) mais aussi des sciences, la comtesse Greffulhe est surtout connue pour sa grande beauté. La totalité de sa garde-robe, qui regroupe plus de 160 pièces, fut donnée en 1964 au Palais Galliera, qui en assure aujourd'hui encore la conservation

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Catalogue de l'exposition présentée au Grand Trianon à Versailles du 8 juillet au 9 octobre 2011. Mises en résonance avec les chefs-d'uvre des collections du musée Galliera, les créations des plus grands couturiers contemporains témoignent d'une commune fascination pour un XVIIIe siècle fantasmé : Lagerfeld invite Watteau et les robes à la française chez Chanel, la maison Christian Dior fait défiler des princesses de contes de fées, Westwood redonne vie à des courtisanes et marquises plutôt délurées ... Riche d'un superbe portfolio mêlant gravures et pièces des XVIIIe, XIXe, XXe et XXIe siècles, ce livre constitue un véritable hommage au siècle des Lumières, au style de la Pompadour, de Marie-Antoinette et à Versailles, capitale du goût au XVIIIe siècle. Livre en version bilingue français et anglais
