From First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln’s seamstress to Elsa Schiaparelli and Chromat, Women Who Revolutionised Fashion chronicles the celebrated and hidden women designers who revolutionised fashion. Highlighting more than 50 individual tastemakers working across materials and genres, this seminal volume profiles fashion vanguards from the 1700s to the present, including street fashion, ready-to-wear, traditional and haute couture. From Madeleine Vionnet to Vivienne Westwood, Diane von Furstenberg to Iris van Herpen, The Women Who Revolutionised Fashion embroiders this history with a nuanced transhistorical study of representation, creativity, and labour – critical reading for fashionistas, makers and feminists alike
