Description
Ultimate and unprecedented, American Fashion is a richly illustrated celebration of the history of fashion in this country. Commissioned by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), AMERICAN FASHION is a visual journey beginning with the protean creators in Hollywood and New York during the1930s and the significant and creative expansion that took place in the years surrounding World War II. The book follows this evolution from the little known talents of the postwar years transitioning to the ensuing 1950s when an ever expanding cast of designers were transformed into national and later international stars. This creative crescendo continues to the growth of major names in American fashion during 1960s and 1970s, and goes on to explore the achievements of American design's brand name marquee stars of the 1980s and 1990s. The book culminates with a look at the contemporary talents of today who continue to export their individual visions of modern American fashion on a global stage. Also included is a collection of portraits of the CFDA's historic and contemporary designers. Elegant and definitive, with over 300 iconic photographs and the work of more than 100 designers, the book captures the superlative work of American designers as seen by the century's greatest photographers and illustrators. American Fashion is the essential modern atlas for over 70 exciting years of great American fashion. Charlie Scheips is a cultural historian, journalist, and curator. He was the founding director of the Condé Nast Archive. His other books include John Rawlings: 30 Years in Vogue (2000) and Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died ( 2006). He lives in New York City. 250 Illustrations
