This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Profusely illustrated, this monograph explores the House of Worth's success in the realms of haute couture after 1890. Hundreds of photographs selected from the V&A's unique archive of over 7,000 official house records capture the Worth style and offer fascinating insights into the daily routine at Maison Worth. These remarkable photographs are flanked by chapters that tell the intriguing story of their aquisition and their historical context, and describe Worth's international clientele of elegant women of wealth and power, from Lillie Langtry and Sarah Bernhardt to the Duchess of Marlborough (formerly Consuelo Vanderbilt).
