Marnie Fogg. The Dress: 100 Ideas that Changed Fashion Forever. London: Goodman (2015).

100 dresses, 100 ideas. The author identifies each innovative idea and follows the reverberations. The dresses date from the nineteenth century to the present. The photographs come from a variety of sources and are, themselves, a tour de force in the exacting art of fashion photography. The credits from museums around the world are a reminder of the dedication to this very popular field of history by so many expert curators and collection managers.

In his Author! Author! blog series, Museum president Gary T. Johnson highlights works that draw on our collection.
