These colourful, eye-catching V&A Fashion autobiographies will make a beautiful addition to any library.
The V&A has just presented autobiographies by four of the twentieth century’s most inspirational fashion designers: Elsa Schiaparelli, Barbara Hulanicki, Christian Dior and Mary Quant – each with new cover artwork by Beatriz Lostalé, V&A student Illustrator of the Year, 2017 depicting ensembles from the V&A’s own fashion archive.
Fabulously entertaining in their own right, the books also serve as an important fashion history – invaluable for students, researchers and all lovers of fashion.
