Abstract:

"Greta Garbo's cocked hat in Romance, Judy Garland's blue-and-white gingham pinafore in The Wizard of Oz, Katharine Hepburn's white and silver gown in The Philadelphia Story: these stunning film looks were all created by fashion designer Gilbert Adrian. From 1924 to 1941, Adrian designed the costumes for dozens of films featuring the stars of Hollywood's golden age. In 1942, Adrian opened his own couture and ready-to-wear business featuring elegant designs characterized by asymmetrical draping, broad shoulders, dolman sleeves, slim skirts, unique patterned fabrics, and splashes of color. His theme was unmistakable: American design for American women. Adrian: Silver Screen to Custom Label is the first book to present the full range of the designer's work and its far-reaching influence on decades of fashion design."--BOOK JACKET.
