Fashion Game Changers: Reinventing the 20th-Century Silhouette

“Before designers like Coco Chanel and Madeleine Vionnet, hourglass silhouettes dominated Western fashion, constricting waists and restricting women’s movements. That started to change in the 20th century with innovations ranging from Chanel’s gamine jackets to Cristóbal Balenciaga’s cascading dresses. The book Fashion Game Changers, out April 21 from Bloomsbury Visual Arts, traces the evolution of fashion designers creating freer, looser-fitting forms. With these radical, avant-garde designs, women were finally able to breathe.” –  Catie L’Heureux, NYMag.com

With over 200 images and commentaries from an international range of leading fashion curators and historians, this beautifully illustrated book showcases some of the most revolutionary silhouettes and innovative designs of over 100 years of fashion.
