The first printing is available as a series of "Designer Editions". Each edition will be bound in a fabric from one of six designers in the book and comes in a plexiglass box. The time-honored "Paisley" was Veronica Etro's pick for the "Etro Edition", limited to just 2,000 copies. From Azzedine Alaia, Cristobal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, the greatest fashion designers of the 20th and 21st centuries are featured in the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. The curators of America's premier fashion museum have selected 500 masterpieces of the art of fashion, providing a visual guide to the history of fashion. Known for its innovative and award-winning exhibitions and its outstanding permanent collection of more than 50,000 garments and accessories, The Museum at FIT in New York City is one of only a handful of museums in the world devoted to the art of fashion. The Museum has built its collection around aesthetically and historically significant "directional" fashion-the kind of clothing and accessories that move fashion forward. The designers are organized from A-Z: Adrian, Balenciaga, Chanel, Dior...through Xuly Bet, Yamamoto, and Zoran. Photographs of selected garments from the Museum's permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while curatorial texts explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured. In addition to showcasing 100 of the most important designers of the last century with essays by the curators at FIT and a foreword by Suzy Menkes, this book also explores how a fashion museum goes about collecting and exhibiting fashion. In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon. "Paisley": it's practically synonymous with the Etro name, and the five "Paisley" motifs selected by Veronica Etro for this edition are no exception. For decades the company has explored and reinterpreted the classic droplet-shaped vegetable decoration, rich in history and meanings, through experimentation and technology, drawing from the past into the present with timeless international style. Six designers - Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg - have contributed fabrics - bold, iconic, revolutionary - to cover 1,000 to 2,000 books each, for a total first printing of 11,000 copies. Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind.
"Where did you get those eyes so blue?""Out of the sky as I came through."Christmas week a good many years ago. Not an "old-fashioned" Christmas this year, for there was no snow or ice; the sky was clear and the air pure, but yet without the sharp, bracing clearness and purity that Master Jack Frost brings when he comes to see us in one of his nice, bright, sunny humours. For he has humours as well as other people-not only is he fickle in the extreme, but even black sometimes, and he is then, I can assure you, a most disagreeable visitor. But this Christmas time he had taken it into his head not to come at all, and the world looked rather reproachful and disconcerted. The poor, bare December world-it misses its snow garment, so graciously hiding all imperfections revealed by the absence of green grass and fluttering leaves; it misses, too, its winter jewels of icicles and hoar frost. Poor old world! What a great many Decembers you have jogged through; no wonder you begin to feel that you need a little dressing up and adorning, like a beauty no longer as young as she has been.
The material incorporated in this study was originally meant to be presented to Columbia University in fulfilment of the last requirement for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. As the work progressed, however, and by the time the first painful fifty pages had been put on paper and tom up again, I became more and more aware that I had emerged out of the initial period of reading and study with convictions and aspirations which it would be difficult tot clothe in the sober garments of modesty and reserve rightly prescribed for a University thesis. Soon after the last words of the manuscript were written (March 1934) it furthermore became clear that owing to the pressure of other work, presentation in thesis form would mean indefinite delay, delay which would almost certainly render a complete revision inevitable. These considerations have led me to the decision to send out my brazen unkempt first-born under his own flag, to meet what- ever fate he deserves. In so doing I have one great regret. Time, that relentless foe of the writer on current events, has not allowed me to weave into the text all of the wise and helpful suggestions which my academical sponsor, Professor H. Parker Willis, with his generous understanding of a young writer's problems and ambitions, has so kindly offered. Had I been able to do so, this little book would have presented a far more polished aspect.
Torn Garments of a Christian Soldier was given to the author by the Holy Spirit, during a time of much prayer and fasting. Throughout this book you will be able to understand the different levels of brokenness and also deliverance in each chapter.
This particular book was written to allow all to have an open mind toward inner feelings we dare not talk about. As you read each chapter, you will see how others express their emotions with life challenges and some of great pain as they recognize that all God's children have issues at times. I pray that this book will touch and inspire each of you.
