    Southern tufts : the regional origins and national craze for chenille fashion

    Callahan, Ashley, author.

    "From the 1920s through the 1960s chenille bedspreads, toilet sets, and bathrobes were sold on clothing lines hung beside popular automobile routes through the Southeast and in souvenir shops across the country, making them part of the American roadside landscape. Chenille also became a popular item in department stores throughout the nation, and tufted bedspreads and robes covered America by the mid-twentieth century. The material became a familiar part of the American experience and its use in apparel represents a notable regional contribution to national fashion. The history of chenille clothing involves a particularly American combination of creative ingenuity Colonial Revival aesthetics, and industrial development"--Provided by publisher.

But the work she did set her spirit soaring, as evidenced in the clothes she made. Rarely credited, Ann Cole Lowe became 'society's best kept secret.

    Charles James : beyond fashion

    Koda, Harold.

    Charles James, often considered to be America's first couturier, was renowned in the 1940s and 1950s as a master at sculpting fabric for the female form and creating fashions that defined mid-century glamour. Although James had no formal training as a dressmaker, he created strikingly original and complex designs, including intricate ball gowns worn by members of high society in New York and Europe. This lavishly illustrated book offers a comprehensive study of James' life and work, highlighting his virtuosity and inventiveness as well as his influence on subsequent fashion designers. Featuring exciting new photography of the spectacular evening dresses James produced between 1947 and 1955, this publication includes enlightening details of these intricate creations alongside vintage photographs and rarely seen archival items, such as patterns, muslins, dress forms and sketches. A detailed and illustrated chronology of James' life describes his magnetic personality, his unorthodox design processes, his colourful supporters - such as Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Cristobal Balenciaga - and profiles of a number of his famous clients, such as Gypsy Rose Lee.
