Where To Wear 2006 Box set

The Where to Wear/Box set includes four individual books on the shopping mecca's of London, Paris, Italy (Rome, Milan and Florence) and New York. Once fashionistas get their hands on it, they will be in retail heaven. Written by teams of fashion journalists living in each city, Where to Wear tells you what guidebooks don't: where to find out-of-the-way boutiques, the best places for vintage, for wedding dresses, for children's' wear; where to go for budget-busting extravagance or bargain-basement trophies. From globally-famous names to hidden treasure-houses, Where to Wear shows visitors where to begin and locals where to go next.

The Theatre de la Mode

The Theatre of Fashion...A must for your library!

It was winter of 1944-45, just after the Liberation of Paris. World War II still raged. To raise funds for the French war relief and to help Paris regain its role as fashion capital, the Paris couture house including the greatest names such as Balenciaga, Schiaparelli, Lavin... and over forty others, created a unique exhibition of 200 petite wire mannequins clothed in the latest fashions and displayed in miniature theatre sets. It was called the Theatre de la Mode. The exhibition toured Europe and the U.S. raised millions of francs for the war relief and established Paris as capital of fashion.

The story is vividly told by many who originally created the exhibition, and by Leslie Caron, Jean Marais, Christian Lacroix, Hubert De Givenchy, Helene Rochas, Bill Blass and Rosamond Bernier. Shot on location in Paris, the video combines oral recollections with rare archival film of the war and post-war eras, of the original exhibition and of fashion in the 1940's. (Today's designers should take heed.)

The documentary tells the fascination story of the Theatre de la Mode...how it was lost for 45 years and then rediscovered and restored. An exciting glimpse of Paris and French fashion in 1945-46...on the eve of Christian Dior's New Look.
