Fashion Muse: The Inspiration Behind Iconic Design
Debra N. Mancoff
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2014
Lavishly illustrated and thematically arranged, Fashion Muse looks at the many forms a muse can take: Greek goddess, fairy-tale princess, wife, lover, supermodel, celebrity, and artist. A prominent art historian with a profound knowledge of the culture of fashion, Debra Mancoff delves far and wide to present pairings both familiar and surprising, including Marie Antoinette and her dressmaker Rose Bertin; Gustav Klimt and Emilie Floge; Elsa Schiaparelli and the Surrealists; Yves Saint Laurent and Catherine Deneuve; and Calvin Klein and Kate Moss. She reveals numerous designers whose muse was their own image, from Coco Chanel to Donna Karan. And she examines the influence of figures from the worlds of art, celebrity, and pop culture. Entertaining, inspiring, and surprising, this enthralling exploration places the muse where he or she belongs: at the highest peaks of the creative process.
