More than any other designer of the twentieth century, Paul Poiret (1879–1944) elevated fashion to the status of an artform.
"This book . . . makes me weep. I want Paul Poiret's gorgeously draped frocks so bad that it hurts to look at them."—Sheila Farr, Seattle Times.
The book's spacious format and impeccable photography capture the elegance of Poiret's relaxed garment sihouettes; the full-page details of fabric, finishings, and embellishments stand alone as exquisite studies in balance and texture. One hundred eighty illustrations include graphic art for fashion, photos of muses, and scenes of Parisian trendsetters. —Tom Lundberg, Fiberarts.
