Book Description

This fascinating look at nearly two centuries of bridal fashion, presents fifty of history's most famous dresses, revealing why and how they continue to inspire brides and designers today. Lavishly illustrated spreads lay bare the anatomy of each show-stopping ensemble: silhouette, fabrics, construction techniques, embellishments, and even hidden details. From the white wedding dress worn by Queen Victoria in 1840 to couture creations by Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Vera Wang, and Vivienne Westwood, 'The Wedding Dress' examines the features of each and every design in chronological sequence. Find out why Queen Victoria draped herself in white lace, how Paul Poiret's knee-length dress ushered in the era of the flapper bride, why Wallis Simpson wore blue on her wedding day, and how Elsa Schiaparelli reinvented the veil. Also included are dresses worn by some of the world's most stylish women - Jacqueline Kennedy, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn - as well as contemporary fashion icons such as Gwen Stefani, Dita Von Teese, and Kate Moss. Vivid photographs, detailed diagrams, and biographies of the dresses' designers make this an indispensable resource for brides, designers, stylists, wedding planners, or anyone interested in the extraordinary world of bridal couture. AUTHOR: Eleanor Thompson served as curator of dress at the Brighton Museum in England and has been an exhibition consultant for the Fashion and Textile Museum, London. She has lectured on fashion at the University of Brighton, the London College of Fashion, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. 170 illustrations

    4.5 starsThanks to EUROBOOK and my winning this book, I was able to get an advanced look into Eleanor Thompson's newest book The Wedding Dress. Having been very much spooked by his The Wedding Dress, I was quite happy to once again enter the world of "spookdom" and read this story. Teenagers are quite impressionable. They often believe a lot of things and try to grab onto concepts and ideas that at times seems quite out of the norm. They often make ready partners, easily led, and make decisions that oftenti.

    A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries. Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read. You don't know it yet, but it's likely you need this book.

    I'm pretty sure Eleanor Thompson books just exist to capture and devour your entire SOUL AND IMAGINATION. I just went on such a wild adventure omg, I feel actually drained. Like this duology has totally filled my creative well. I am heart eyes and my heart so so full and !!!! my emotions are just !!! which is exactly how a professionally reviewer would summarise a book.

    I know a lot of us were expecting The Wedding Dress to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".
