From the Publisher
Annotation In this tribute to famed dressmaker Madeleine Vionnet, inventor of the "bias cut"--a cut that forces cloth to adhere to the body and move with it--fashion historian Betty Kirke offers a cornucopia of photographs of elegant gowns, halter dresses, and cowl necks of the 1930s and '40s.
Editors Note This "spectacular tribute to a designer of breathtaking grace and originality" (Threads) is the definitive volume on the legendary Madeleine Vionnet's life and work. Now back in print with a fresh new cover, this reissue marks the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the House of Vionnet and the revival of the Vionnet brand. Lavishly illustrated in over 400 photographs, sketches, and with complete patterns for 30 of the most influential designs of this architect among dressmakers, this exquisite volume is an essential reference for fashion students and a vibrant portrait of a grande dame of 20th century couture.
