Mere words cannot describe this elegant visual documentary of American fashion, which focuses on the lives of New York designers both obscure and celebrated as well as their fanciful creations. Throughout, Milbank intertwines a virtual who's who of the women's clothing industry from the early 19th century through the 1980s with the story of the rise of American department stores and ready-to-wear clothing. Beginning with the 1940s, entries are arranged alphabetically by individual designers and include brief biographical information along with their notable signature or trademark design concepts and features. A welcome addition to any type of library collection.
