From West African masquerades to Venetian carnivals and New York society galas, fancy dress has long been used to convey important social and political messages. The only form of clothing that all people, regardless of gender, race, class or sexuality are likely to wear at some point in their lives, fancy dress is a symbol of both escapism and protest; it stands for a vision of fantasy and fun, while also confronting the reality of cultural stereotypes. Exploring all the allure, playfulness and daring of dressing up, Carnival to Catwalk takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the global history of fancy dress. Drawing on a treasure-trove of textual and visual resources, the book encompasses Halloween festivities and transvestite clubs, Mardi Gras parades and gatherings at Versailles, revealing how fancy dress has long been used to celebrate as well as to disguise individual identity. Vividly chronicling evidence from the Middle Ages to the modern day, cultural historian Benjamin Wild throws open the historical dressing-up box and demonstrates the enduring appeal of fancy dress, as it becomes an increasingly central part of modern couture and clothing design. Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated, Carnival to Catwalk is a remarkable resource for scholars, students and costume enthusiasts alike.

Many people know that Christian Dior (1905-1957) was a French fashion designer, the founder of the world famous fashion house that carries his name. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he once owned a small art gallery selling work by artists including Pablo Picasso; that he employed a young Yves Saint Laurent as his assistant; that he included a garment in each of his shows named after his home town of Granville; and that he had a superstitious belief in the number 8, with the house of Dior being housed over 8 workshops in an 8-storey building in the 8th district of Paris. This book presents a visual catwalk through his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the genius behind the garments.

In this completely unique and innovative book, Kristin Knox (author of MCQUEEN: Genius of a Generation) traces the roots of today’s ready-to-wear fashion designers to “traditional costume” clothing styles from more than 60 cultures around the world and explores how local or “street” fashions are coming back once again and influencing catwalks in fashion capitals from New York to Paris. “Traditional" refers to any clothing worn locally around the world before the rise of commercially produced clothing and includes the Japanese kimono, the Burqa, Imperial Chinese robes, and Turkish harem pants—all inspirations for top Western designers such as Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and, of course, Diane Von Furstenberg’s classic 1972 wrap dress which many trace back as inspired by the kimono. The book explores the trajectory of fashion design, born as an industry around the same time that Orientalism swept Europe and colonies were established in Africa and India. Fashion incorporated these new exotic themes into its creativity and became inextricably mixed with ethnic and cultural sartorial traditions. The book’s narrative also comes full circle, going from local to global and back to local again to see what’s happening today in fashion in these countries. As the internet moves the fashion industry to be much more global in approach it also enables designers to be more conscious of what local populations are wearing in the streets, particularly young, trendy designers such as Alexander Wang. CULTURE TO CATWALK is the first book to explore the cyclical and global nature of fashion’s roots and future on the runway and includes interviews and quotes from leading designers such as Amanda Wakeley and Donna Karan and representatives from bestselling brands such as Aquascutum and Jaeger.
