The Impossible Collection of Fashion
The Impossible Collection of Fashion from Assouline. In this magnificent COLLECTION of the most iconic dresses of the twentieth century, Valerie Steele flexes her curatorial muscle. From Poiret to Pucci, Doucet to Dior, Vionnet to Valentino, she selects the 100 dresses that caused a stir on the runway or as they entered a room and ultimately inspired a new direction in fashion. The COLLECTION, while certainly subjective, is sure to receive nods of recognition, along with a gasp (or two) of surprise.
