Synopsis

A provocateur, radical thinker and instigator of the most important sartorial statements of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Vivienne Westwood is a fearless nonconformist with a relentless passion for tradition. From the mini crini, the liberty corset and the rocking-horse shoe to the stunning, sumptuous wedding dress worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City and Dita Von Teese's infamous purple wedding dress, Westwood has unleashed her imagination on the world for almost 40 years. Her Pirate and Edwardian looks were worldwide fashion trends, and her revolutionary designs include the co-creation of the punk style, the introduction of street style into high fashion, the reworking of the crinoline, the restyling of Harris tweed and the reintroduction of platforms and the hourglass figure. She has been described by Anna Wintour as 'an unbelievable influence' and by Alexander McQueen as 'the Coco Chanel of our day'. Vogue, the international fashion bible, has charted the careers of designers through the decades. Its unique archive of photographs, taken by the leading photographers of the day from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino, and original illustrations, together with its stable of highly respected fashion writers, make Vogue the most authoritative and prestigious source of reference on fashion. With a circulation of over 160,000 and a readership of over 1,400,000, no brand is better positioned to present a library on the great fashion designers of the modern age.

About the Publisher

Quadrille Publishing

Quadrille Publishing

It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed wtih desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest, The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!
