Pierre Cardin: Past, Present, Future

£18.99

Product description

A visual examination of Cardin fashion, from the 1950s through to the 1990s complemented by an article tracing his development. Publication coincides with the Pierre Cardin retrospective exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.;The sequence of pictures traces Cardin's design from his earliest days with his own company up to and including a selection from his autumn 1990 collection. The designs are shown chronologically, demonstrating the ever-changing Cardin themes. Many of the pictures are taken on the cat-walk at the haute couture shows, giving a feel of intimacy and immediacy, rather than shots of specially-posed models.;Although Pierre Cardin is known first and foremost as a couturier, he has also proved himself an innovative and visionary designer. Not only does this book show a comprehensive collection of his high fashion, but the inclusion of accessories and artefacts ranging from aeroplane fittings to furniture helps to give a rounded picture of Cardin the designer.;This book should prove of interest to the fashion world, to design and fashion students and teachers, historians of dress and all who have an interest in clothes.
