Icons of Fashion

My trip to London, I spent the majority of my money in the museums bookstore where you get the most amazing books! I miss you, London!
One of the books, Icons of Fashion :The 20th Century by Prestel publication and edited by Gerda Buxbaum is about fashion from 1800s and how they describes "woman as flowers" to "New Millennium" is a decade all about excess which is very true! Its time to get back to basics of fashion!

This fashion exhibition features work by female designers as well as clothing and accessories worn by female department store executives, influential clients, magazine editors, muses and models. Women have played a significant role in the history of fashion and they continue to be a driving force as tastemakers and industry leaders.

Featuring over seventy looks from the Museum’s permanent collection, Arbiters of Style includes designs by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, Sonia Delaunay, Jeanne Lanvin, and Claire McCardell and features clothing worn by influential women such as Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, photographer Louise Dahl Wolf, and actresses Lauren Bacall and Rosalind Russell. The historical importance of these women and many others will be revealed in the display of garments from the eighteenth century to the present.

Arbiters of Style: Women at the Forefront of Fashion is organized by Molly Sorkin and Colleen Hill, along with Fred Dennis, Clare Sauro, Harumi Hotta and Lynn Weidner.
