my loving and lovely sister gave me the taschen series, "fashion: a history from the 18th century to the 20th century" for christmas and i haven't been able to put them down since. they are the most beautiful and informative books on fashion and design ive read. each page is filled with notes on designers, their patterns, inspirations and specific techniques - a great escape.
now, which one of these frocks should i wear to work tomorrow??
pieces by daimaru dior, jean-paul gaultier, christian dior
