About the Author

Issey Miyake is a world-renowned fashion designer. Betty Kirke is a lecturer and instructor in costume conservation.


The book comprises 400 photographs, 38 original dress patterns and interviews with the designer herself. Colorful visuals showcase Vionnet's preference for Grecian-style dresses and the bias cut, the latter on display in one of her black silk, satin-backed crepe dresses, which she fitted with ripples at the hems and matched with a high neckline. Vionnet loved flow in dresses -- so did her famous clients like Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford -- and she was famously opposed to corsets. 'I have never been able to tolerate corsets myself, so why should I inflict them on other women, ' she has been quoted as saying. --New York Times T Style Blog
