Description : FEATURING BRANDS - Agent Provocateur - Bordelle - Calvin Klein - Coco De Mer - La Fille d’O - La Perla - Mise En Cage - Nichole de Carle - Paul Seville - Dita Von Teese - Wonderbra - Zahia Dehar If you appreciate cinema classics one might be excused for thinking that our prehistoric ancestors rocked furry bikinis à lá Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C., but for the longest of times ladies have been looking for ways to support, suppress or accentuate the curves for a long time. From the origins of basic undergarments to the Victorian corset to the birth of the engineering feat of the underwire bra, that versatile undergarment that helps defy gravity. And it turns out we have ancient Egyptians to thank for it (no surprise there, Nefertiti). Egyptians wore a band of linen under their diaphanous robes to fl atten the bust line, while in China they were developing their own solutions — women wore single-pieced underpinnings that covered the breasts and belly but left the back, exposed. In fact, outerwear has always dictated the look and function of undergarments. Cretan women pretty much invented the corset to get a wasp-waisted look that predated Mae West’s hourglass fi gure by 3,000 years. But how did we get from there to La Perla and Agent Provocateur?

Description : Many cities are considered fashion capitals, but only one is known as the world's fashion capital, Paris. French Haute Couture began in the 18th century, but the French had been looked to with admiration or disdain in their dress sense well before that. In the 16th century, Anne Boleyn was famous for wearing a French-style hood, which showed her hair and had a generally provocative style. Even then, the French were famous for their liberal attitude towards sexuality. Paris has reigned as the world's fashion capitol for more than three centuries. During this time it has attracted the world's foremost designers and seemingly imbued its citizens with an unmatched and innate sense of style. In this edition we explore the lives and Paris fashion legends of; -Azzedine Alaïa -Karl Lagerfeld -Louis Vuitton -Christian Lacroix -Jean Paul Gaultier -Hermès -Elie Saab -Christian Louboutin -Jean Patou -Jeanne Lanvin Fashion Industry Broadcast's "MASTERS OF FASHION" is an 11 title series: Masters of Fashion - Vol 31 Americans Masters of Fashion - Vol 32 Americans Masters of Fashion - Vol 33 Italians Masters of Fashion - Vol 34 Italians Masters of Fashion - Vol 35 Heels Part 1 Masters of Fashion - Vol 35 Heels Part 2 Masters of Fashion - Vol 36 Bags Masters of Fashion - Vol 37 Paris Part 1 Masters of Fashion - Vol 38 Paris Part 2 Masters of Fashion - Vol 39 Renegades Masters of Fashion - Vol 40 Lingerie Masters of Fashion - Vol 41 Music in Fashion Fashion Industry Broadcast is the number one destination on the web for the latest in fashion, style, music, creative arts, creative media, models, celebrity biographies and much more.

Description : MASTER OF FASHION Vol 39 RENEGADESBy Charlie O'BrienFeaturing,-Alexander McQueen -Yohji Yamamoto-Rei Kawakubo-Issey Miyake, -Kenzo -Malcolm McClaren -Vivienne Westwood -Jeremy Scott -Rick Owens -Hedi Slimane -John Galliano Without the designers mentioned in this book, fashion would have ultimately stagnated decades ago. Renegades, no matter their talent, perspective, or unique way of life, are those who refuse to be content with the confines of the box society deems appropriate for all. They are the dreamers, the rebels, the auteurs, without which culture would have never flourished. They push the boundaries of the box - sometimes escaping it entirely - in order to push what human beings are capable of in unique and sometimes astounding directions. In the case of broader society, renegades are men and women who revolutionised politics, science, philosophy and social values by breaking free of the status quo and enlightening others to do the same. They have protested on behalf of millions of oppressed people; created the ideas that gave birth to democracy; and revolutionised the world by refusing to accept the established order of science in favour of bold - and ultimately correct - new leaps. There is danger in acting as a renegade, to refuse the accepted rhetoric of the larger rabble in pursuit of one's own ideals, but when renegades are capable of engaging with the wider public they can inspire society to new awakenings - and once their ideas take hold in society, there can be no going back. These fashion renegades helped shape the course of human history and popular culture.Fashion Industry Broadcast's "MASTERS OF FASHION" is a series:Masters of Fashion - Vol 31 AmericansMasters of Fashion - Vol 32 AmericansMasters of Fashion - Vol 33 ItaliansMasters of Fashion - Vol 34 ItaliansMasters of Fashion - Vol 35 Heels Part 1Masters of Fashion - Vol 35 Heels Part 2Masters of Fashion - Vol 36 BagsMasters of Fashion - Vol 37 Paris Part 1 Masters of Fashion - Vol 38 Paris Part 2 Masters of Fashion - Vol 39 Lingerie Masters of Fashion - Vol 40 RenegadesFashion Industry Broadcast is a leading global publisher of lifestyle titles, this multi edition set has been created as a hard cover colour coffee table books, e-books for $19 from Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBook's, Google books, Stanza and Kobo, Apps for mobile devices and a TV documentary series is also in the works.

Description : Nancy L. Green offers a critical and lively look at New York’s Seventh Avenue and the Parisian Sentier in this first comparative study of the two historical centers of the women’s garment industry. Torn between mass production and "art," this industry is one of the few manufactauring sectors left in the service-centered cities of today. Ready-to-Wear and Ready-to-Work tells the story of urban growth, the politics of labor, and the relationships among the many immigrant groups who have come to work the sewing machines over the last century. Green focuses on issues of fashion and fabrication as they involve both the production and consumption of clothing. Traditionally, much of the urban garment industry has been organized around small workshops and flexible homework, and Green emphasizes the effect this labor organization had on the men and mostly women who have sewn the garments. Whether considering the immigrant Jews, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Chinese in New York or the Chinese-Cambodians, Turks, Armenians, and Russian, Polish, and Tunisian Jews in Paris, she outlines similarities of social experience in the shops and the unions, while allowing the voices of the workers, in all their diversity to be heard. A provocative examination of gender and ethnicity, historical conflict and consensus, and notions of class and cultural difference, Ready-to-Wear and Ready-to-Work breaks new ground in the methodology of comparative history.

Description : Few issues attracted more attention in the nineteenth century than the "problem" of women's work, and few industries posed that problem more urgently than the booming garment industry in Paris. The seamstress represented the quintessential "working girl," and the sewing machine the icon of "modern" femininity. The intense speculation and worry that swirled around both helped define many issues of gender and labor that concern us today. Here Judith Coffin presents a fascinating history of the Parisian garment industry, from the unraveling of the guilds in the late 1700s to the first minimum-wage bill in 1915. She explores how issues related to working women took shape and how gender became fundamental to the modern social division of labor and our understanding of it. Combining the social history of women's labor and the intellectual history of nineteenth-century social science and political economy, Coffin sets many questions in their fullest cultural context: What constituted "women's" work? Did women belong in the industrial labor force? Why was women's work equated with low pay? Should not a woman enjoy status as an enlightened homemaker/consumer? The author examines patterns of consumption as well as production, setting out, for example, the links among the newly invented sewing machine, changes in the labor force, and the development of advertising, with its shifting and often unsettling visual representations of women, labor, and machinery. Throughout, Coffin challenges the conventional categories of work, home, and women's identity. Originally published in 1996. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
