    'One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress'
    Karl Lagerfeld

From the bold, dramatic designs of Zandra Rhodes to the eye-catching LBDs by Vivienne Westwood, from the pared-down simplicity of Calvin Klein's shift dresses to an asymmetric shoulder evening gown by Versace, Vogue Essentials: Little Black Dress celebrates the very best of the LBD.


    Published simultaneously with Vogue Essentials: Handbags. This irresistible new series from Conran Octopus and British Vogue explores the key pieces in a stylish woman's wardrobe and features photographs from Vogue's peerless archive of more than a million pictures.

    Author: DERRICK ROBIN & MUIR ROB

    A stunning photographic history of the world's most beautiful and iconic women- the Vogue cover girls and supermodels from past to present. Shining a light on the lives of Vogue''s fashion models, this collection uses photographs and illustrations from more than 90 years of history to tell the fascinating story of the real faces of fashion. Throughout history, these models have occupied a curious position: while their faces were instantly familiar, virtually nothing else was known about them. But their impression upon Vogue's readership has always been considerable, they reflect and represent the ever-changing ideal of beauty. The models of the 1950s are represented, such as Lisa Fonssagrives and Dorian Leigh, who were the first to become household names and to achieve the glamour and prestige that came with world fame. And of course there are plenty of stunning images of the supermodels of the 1990s who turned the profession into a billion-dollar industry, so that today models such as Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer, and Gisele Bundchen are brand names.

    Author: PRESS CLARE

    Who makes your clothes? This used to be an easy question to answer: it was the seamstress next door, or the tailor on the high street - or you made them yourself. Today we rarely know the origins of the clothes hanging in our closets. The local shoemaker, dressmaker and milliner are long gone, replaced by a globalised fashion industry worth $1.5 trillion a year.

    In Wardrobe Crisis, fashion journalist Clare Press explores the history and ethics behind what we wear. Putting her insider status to good use, Press examines the entire fashion ecosystem, from sweatshops to haute couture, unearthing the roots of today's buy-and-discard culture. She traces the origins of icons like Chanel, Dior and Hermes; charts the rise and fall of the department store; and follows the thread that led us from Marie Antoinette to Carrie Bradshaw.

    From a time when Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein were just two boys from the Bronx, to the world of the global fashion juggernaut, where Zara's parent company produces more than 900 million garments annually, Press takes us on an insider's journey of discovery and revelation.

    Wardrobe Crisis is a witty and persuasive argument for a fashion revolution that will empower you to feel good about your wardrobe again.

    Clare Press is Marie Claire's fashion editor-at-large. She was previously the features director at Sunday Style and has worked as a fashion designer, brand consultant and editor, including stints as features director at Vogue, fashion critic at the Monthly and columnist at Instyle."

There are, for example, thirty-one genuine watches from the London workshops of Thomas Tompion, whose reputation stretched far and wide even in his own time. Another famous maker is Swiss-born Abraham Louis Breguet, who lived and worked in Paris supplying the best that money could buy to the crown heads and aristocratic families of the western world.

She has modelled for Dolce and Gabbana, Red or Dead and high-street chains such as TK Maxx, and regularly appears in newspaper fashion pages and glossy magazines. She is one of Britain's most in-demand supermodels and has worked non-stop for almost twenty years. But what makes her really rather extraordinary is that she is now in her late eighties.Daphne grew up in an age when dresses were lovingly run up for you by your mother, when needlework for even the most basic outfit was an art form, and when a new Simplicity Pattern was almost more exciting than a new dance tune. Perhaps as a result, she has had a lifelong love affair with clothes and fashion. The Way We Wore is a heart-warming account of that love affair, taking readers from the organdie party frocks of a 1930s childhood to the pages of Vogue.

Her parents threw lavish parties where style was essential and guests included the biggest Hollywood, theatre and literary legends - among them Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Orson Welles, Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams and Maggie Smith. As Tynan describes it, her parents were "trying their best to be the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald of the '50s." In Wear and Tear, Tynan reveals the glamour, secrets and dark side of her parents' highly stylised world of endless jet-setting and savage fights, the struggles she faced as she tried to take charge of her life, and the happiness she eventually found as a costume designer, writer, wife and mother. She tells her astonishing story through the prism of the clothes which have come to symbolise her turbulent life: her father's dandy attire, her mother's mink coat and Pucci dress, and donning Ossie Clark apparel on Oxford Street as a young adult. Her love for fashion eventually inspired her to a career as a Hollywood designer, dressing Richard Gere, Bruce Willis, Julie Andrews, Zooey Deschanel and other stars. Frank, funny and deftly observed, Wear and Tear is an immensely engrossing, charming and eye-opening memoir of an extraordinary life.

    Title: Wedding Dress 300 Years of Bridal Fashions
    Author: EHRMAN EDWINA

    Accompanying an exhibition at Te Papa, THE WEDDING DRESS: 300 YEARS OF BRIDAL FASHIONS draws on the Victoria and Albert Museum's superb collection of fashionable wedding dresses, as well as photographs, letters, memoirs, newspaper accounts and genealogical research to explore the history of the wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it, from 1700 to the present day. Focusing on the white wedding dress, which first became fashionable in the early nineteenth century, the book considers the way couturiers and designers have challenged and refreshed the traditional white wedding dress and the influence of the wedding industry and its origins in the commercialization of the wedding in Victorian Britain. The Wedding Dress is not only about costume, but also about the cultivation of the image of the bride. This book is a glorious tribute to an exquisite, stylish, glamorous gown, the romance of its evolution and the splendour of its design.

    Title: What Shall I Wear? the What, Where, When and How Much of Fashion
    Author: MCCARDELL CLAIRE

    The revolutionary fashion designer credited with originating "The American Look," Claire McCardell designed for the emerging active lifestyle of women in the 1940s and '50s. She was the originator of mix-and-match separates, open-backed sundresses, and feminine denim fashion; she started the trend for ballet flats as a wartime leather-rationing measure. Spaghetti straps, brass hooks and eyes as fasteners, rivets, menswear details and fabrics: they were all started by McCardell. Her Monastic and Pop-over dresses achieved cult status, and her fashions were taken up by working women, the suburban set, and high society alike.

    First published in 1956,What Shall I Wear?is a distillation of McCardell's democratic fashion philosophy and a chattily vivacious guide to looking effortlessly stylish. Mostly eschewing Paris, although she studied there and was influenced by Vionnet and Madame Gres, McCardell preferred an unadorned aesthetic; modern and minimalist, elegant and relaxed, even for evening, with wool jersey and tweed among her favorite fabrics.

    What Shall I Wear?provides a glimpse into the sources of McCardell's inspiration--travel, sports, the American leisure lifestyle, and her own closet--and& how she transformed them into fashion, all the while approaching design from her chosen vantage point of usefulness. A retro treat for designers and everyone who loves fashion--vintage and contemporary--and teeming with charming illustrations and still-solid advice for finding your own best look, creatively shopping on a budget, and building a real wardrobe that is chic and individual,What Shall I Wear?is a tribute to the American spirit in fashion.

    When Fashion Really Works
    ISBN: 9781743369876
    Title: When Fashion Really Works
    Author: FOGG MARNIE

    'When Fashion Really Works' showcases eighty outstanding fashion confections, from the birth of the industry in the mid-19th century to the present day, and defines the characteristics of the garments that render the design both influential and iconic. These range from the appropriation of other cultures, such as Jeanne Lanvin's exotic robe de style, to the radical transposition of proscribed elements, such as the use of underwear as outerwear by Jean-Paul Gaultier; some mark an overnight switch in silhouette, such as Christian Dior's 'Corolle' line-dubbed the 'New Look'-and the abrupt raising of hemlines inspired by Mary Quant's miniskirts. In some instances, the garments represent a desire to transgress the acceptable-Vivienne Westwood's punk hangman's sweater; in other cases they are evidence of a cerebral approach, such as the slashed robes of Rei Kawakebo for Commes des Garcons...'When Fashion Really Works' explores how a one-season statement becomes a fashion classic, remaining immutable throughout the vagaries of seasonal change and becoming a permanent fixture in the fashion firmament. It is a must-have book for all those who love fashion and who want to discover what it is that elevates certain garments to iconic status.
