The Victoria and Albert Museum Pocket Address Book: Haute Couture: London and Paris 1947-1957 Summary


This year's Victoria & Albert Museum pocket address book is illustrated with images of Parisian and British couture from a decade that Christian Dior described as the 'Golden Age' of fashion. Dior's launch of the 'New Look' for his first collection in 1947 shocked and delighted the fashion world, creating a new style that symbolized femininity. The full skirts and hourglass silhouettes were considered highly decadent, synonymous with luxury, opulence and prosperity, following the austerity of the war years. The decade saw the rise of the celebrity, designer, photographer and supermodel. As colour magazine printing became sophisticated, couture was brought to the attention of the public, feeding their aspirations and desires, shaking off the drab raiment of the war years. Beautifully illustrated with glamorous pictures, this is the perfect gift for every handbag! A new addition this year is a little pocket on the inside back cover so you can keep bits of paper and notes safe and at hand
