The Fashion Of Film: Fashion Design Inspired By Cinema
The Fashion of Film: Fashion design inspired by cinema
The Fashion of Film is the perfect book for the fashion fan. In it, fashion historian Amber Butchart takes a journey through the last 100 years of cinema style and its influence on the catwalks. With beautiful imagery and thoroughly-researched text, she looks at how our most iconic movies have transformed the world of high fashion.
Karl Lagerfeld was influenced by the dystopian vision of Metropolis, the picture-perfect world of Wes Anderson's films are echoed in the collections of Miuccia Prada, and Audrey Hepburn was key to Hubert de Givenchy's work. Fashion designers have long taken their inspiration from silver screen idols, and continue to do so today.
