Debutantes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Debutantes free pdf When the golden age of high fashion and high society converged, and glamour was born. A debutante's dress is anything but a minor detail, and this sumptuous volume delights in one stunning look after another: lace bodices and silver sequins by Chanel- Vionnet's luxurious silk brocades- the signature white satin gloves and ubiquitous feathers of the '30s- fluid frocks by Schiaparelli- the heiress-worthy designs of Claire McCardell and Valentina, especially popular with the ladies of the Whitney and Vanderbilt families- tulle and chiffon gowns by Dior and Mainbocher- sleek, one-shoulder styles by Norman Norell- and the one-of-a-kind, custom-made gowns donned by countless celebutantes, such as Jackie Kennedy and Brenda Frazier (whose custom frock earned her the cover of Life magazine).
