Offered is LES PETITES DAMES de MODE An Adventure in Design by John R. Burbridge
For years, doll and costume enthusiasts alike have seized every opportunity to view the authentic period ensembles created by John R. Burbridge, former bridal designer for the prestigious Priscilla of Boston. Originally inspired by the French Théâtre de la Mode of the 1940s, Mr Burbridge spent twenty-five years creating Les Petites Dames de Mode ("little ladies of fashion"). The resulting collection of Victorian and Edwardian gowns worn by 29-inch mannequins has been displayed in prominent museums throughout the country and was the subject of a video produced in the 1990s. Not until now has the entire group been presented in one printed volume. This book features every gown created by Mr. Burbridge for his celebrated collection in full-page photos, with close-up view of important details, accompanied by the designer's extensive notes on the creation of each piece.
The story of high fashion during the opulent Gilded Age, this book is more than just another volume of costume history. It is also the tale of John Burbridge's adventure as a contemporary designer who journeys back to a wonderful era of fashion.
This exquisite new, oversized hard cover book has 144 pages in full color, published in 2004. 12-1/4" x 9-1/4". The book is in new/gift quality condition.
