I saw this book in the V&A but it was so expensive. Received a gift voucher for my birthday and treated myself. This is a most beautiful book and one I will treasure. It goes into great detail of the history of Paris couture. Anyone who is interested in fashion and its history would love this book. Not a book to pick up and read from cover to cover but rather one to read now and again when researching certain periods in the history of fashion. This book contains beautiful photography of some of the most beautifu designer garments. Definitely recommend if you are interested in fashion and particularly 20th century fashion.

Paris Haute Couture 25 Mar. 2013
By K. Lipio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the fashion world, very few books are written so that one can say that it is truly remarkable, there are a lot of good books and books with nice photography, but this one is in the category of Truly Well Made book on fashion, the information and photos are amazing. Truly a treasure to have and use as a guide to recent fashion history.

Gorgeous! 21 Dec. 2013

This book came to us quickly and in great condition. I got it for my daughter who has a vintage clothing store. She was thrilled. We both enjoyed looking through it. It appears to be a high quality book. The photographs are excellent and the clothes are stunning. It will be a good reference for her and a great book to dream on.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in fashion.

The finest haute couture book I have ever owned. 3 Feb. 2014
By T. Divens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The best book on couture in a decade. Visually stunning, with superb photography. Intellectually serious and scholarly, yet compulsively readable. A book mercifully free of fashionbabblespeak. Delicious in the best, non-fatning way. Please buy this: your enjoyment will be many times the value of the money you pay for it. Your library is imcomplete-at best-without it.
The clothes are the stars of the show, and what stars they are. Worth, Callot Soeurs (don't miss Figure 18), Doucet , a rare Lucile loom large. All the expected mid-century and later names are there, often represented with non-obvious choices-another strength of the book.

Someone looking for a more glitzy or gossipy account of the surface frisson of haute couture (especially it's recent decades) wi 22 Dec. 2014
By PolyglotLit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a history book first and foremost. It excels at providing a history of the main couture businesses in Paris from the 1890s onward. The business and labor details, including advertising and the history of mannequin use and construction, are outlined in different chapters. Someone looking for a more glitzy or gossipy account of the surface frisson of haute couture (especially it's recent decades) will be disappointed.
