Fashion in the '70s by Emmanuelle Dirix( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whereas the 1970s opened with a fashion hangover from the 1960s, with looks such as mini skirts, bell-bottom trousers and the hippie look still enduring, the decade soon took on its own sartorial identity. The most prominent trends were the peasant look, glam (influenced by glam rock) and disco, popularised by the 1977 film 'Saturday Night Fever'. Many other individual fashion items went mainstream, none more so than platform shoes, flared trousers and the wrap dress. All of these styles and more are included in 1970s 'Fashion: the definitive sourcebook'. The historicism that had started in fashion in the 1960s continued in the Seventies with Art Nouveau and Art Deco-inspired styles championed by Biba, but the Laura Ashley pastoral style was also popular. Finally, the emergence of punk fashion towards the closing years of the decade paved the way for a new aesthetic that rejected traditional gender, beauty and fashion roles and paved the way for alternative fashions since

"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.

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The changing status of knitwear in high fashion is a fascinating history in which the threads of socio-cultural revolutions and fashion design are closley knit together. By unravelling its ups and downs, in different places and eras, this book starts to shed a light on the origins of our current perspective on knitwear. Due to knitwear's associations with hobby culture, femininity and crafts, it is too often overlooked that it can also be something highly fashionable, experimental and a daring choice for fashion designers. Knitwear's contemporary comeback is in fact a vogue for something that never really disappeared. Body hugging cling, jersey sportswear, raw knits, sculptural volumes, lace-like body nets ... the possibilities of knitting make it an endless source of inspiration for fashion designers. This book starts to tug at the yarn of knitwear's hidden history, investigating different production methods, social histories and the aesthetic (r)evolutions of knitwear in fashion. With topics ranging from grandad chic to utilitarian jumpers, from fashionable stockings to 3D knits, the everlasting appeal of twinsets and the formless in fashion ... this book takes a closer look at something we all own but that is often simply taken for granted: knitwear. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Fashion Museum in Antwerp
