In an exceptional compilation of the original words of these couturiers, Couture Confessions provides a unique and in-depth look at the lives and work of these fashion icons. In this engaging, beautifully designed book, Pamela Golbin, acclaimed chief curator of twentieth-century fashion and textiles at Paris?s Mus?e des Arts D?coratifs, has ingeniously constructed conversations in the designers? own words that highlight their compelling personal stories as well as essential fashion "moments"?from designers Paul Poiret, Crist?bal Balenciaga, Madame Gr?s, Alexander McQueen, Madeleine Vionnet, and Gabrielle Chanel to Elsa Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent, Jeanne Lanvin, Pierre Balmain, and Christian Dior. Featuring striking illustrations by internationally recognized illustrator Yann Legendre, each "interview" asks the questions every fashion lover has always wanted to ask, making these legends approachable, human, and ever more inspiring." -- from publisher's websites."@en ;
