Addressing the Century: 100 Years of Art and Fashion (1998)
This vividly illustrated book celebrates the close relationship between the worlds of art and fashion in the twentieth century. It traces a history of ideas from these two arenas, investigating their similarities and differences and the ways that both have been crucial to the development of twentieth-century culture.
Topics explored include the role of theater and ballet in the 1930s; the place of the fashion mannequin and the tailor’s dummy in surrealist art; mutability and transience in art and fashion and fashion photography; and clothing’s effect on the presentation and perception of the body.
