Vionnet's contribution to 20th-century fashion is the bias-cut dress, which displays "the supple, sinuous elegance characteristic of the thirties." Her mastery of fabric allowed her to design dresses that draped across a woman's body, flattering her shape. This book chronicles Vionnet's life and includes personal reminiscences from employees and friends. But the main appeal is the lavish, full-page photographs of Vionnet's designs, which spotlight her creations of the 1920s and 1930s. This book joins Jean Laymarie's Chanel (Rizzoli, 1987) and Francoise Giroud's Dior ( LJ 1/88), among others, in the publisher's series on influential 20th-century fashion designers. Essential for collections specializing in fashion design or costume history, though the price is prohibitive for general collections.

Description du livre Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 1991. Hard Cover. État : Fine. Etat de la jaquette : Very Good+. First American Edition. 1991 First Edition. FINE in VERY GOOD+ dust jacket. A clean, totally unmarked and firmly bound copy of this monumental work on the "Euclid of Fashion," the French 'haute couture' designer Madeleine Vionnet. Pages and black endpapers are crisp and clean. Black cloth hardcover, titled on spine and front cover in blind embossing is fresh and sharp. Binding and hinges are firm and intact. Color pictorial jacket is clean and complete, moderately shelf rubbed with some dulling to the lamination, small scuffs to corner tips. No chips or tears; the jacket is in a clear archival protector. A significant work, not only for the sumptuous illustrations (350 in all including archival black and white photos as well as 100 color photos), but also for the insight Jacqueline Demonex, Vionnet's godchild and confidante, provides on the creative life of this intensely private artist.
