Designs of Coco Channel and Edith Head

Catzmom | Posted in Talk With Us on

Hello, I am new to discussion groups and I just wanted to say hello.  I am Catzmom and I have been a Threads fan for quite a few years.  What I wanted to know is is there a book somewhere that has all of Coco Channel’s designs and or patterns I know that this is an active salon but I was wondering……I was also wondering about a book with the designs of Edith Head.  I like both of these designers and would like to encorporate some aspects of there designs into my styles.  Thanks Catzmom

    Catzmom:  There are several books on http://www.amazon.com that deal with Coco Chanel and her designs.  The most promising look to be:

    Chanel (Metropolitan Museum of Art Publications), Harold Koda, et al.

    The World of Coco Chanel, Edmonde Charles-Roux

    Chanel:  The Couturiere at Work, Amy de la Haye

    There are probably some at your local library, too.  I remember when the Met had the exhibition on Chanel a few years ago, there were quite a few articles written on her and her work.

    The Met exhibit was quite lovely although it did not contain everything.  Any compilation, such as that mentioned by Mimi would be a wonderful resource addition to your collection.  Z

    Try and catch some of those Turner Classic Movies. It is wonderful to see Edith Head's garments up on the silver screen. She is such a wonderful designer. I don't think I have ever seen anyone use stripes the way she did. Fascinating.
