Since Coco Chanel invented the little black dress in 1926 it has become a wardrobe staple. Even considering the many decades it's been since women discovered trousers and separates, many still dream of wearing glamorous gowns. No item of clothing has endured for longer than the dress. The last century alone has seen the most radical changes of style--hemlines swinging from ankle to thigh; outlines alternating between the body-hugging and the bell--yet our fascination with "the frock" has not gone away.
From Mary Quant's mini to Hussein Chalayan's mechanical marvels and Kate Middleton's wedding dress, this stunningly photographed book looks at the dress over a century of fashion.
