Lavish exhibition catalogue for the first post-war exhibition of Parisian couture which relied on wire mannequins and miniature costumes in an effort to revive the French fashion industry. The French organisers drew upon a stellar roster of contributors which included Jean Cocteau and for this catalogue the photography of Brassai and Doisneau among others. Spiral-bound with a Berard lithograph to the card cover which is rubbed to edges with slight damp marking along the top edge of the front cover and soiling to the lower cover. Internally very good; two staple punctures on the first leaf where a piece of ephemera was formerly attached. The advertisements are printed in colour on high quality coated paper and include contributions from Hermes, Nina Ricci and Schiaparelli followed by a preface by Lelong, title page and contents on buff card. The story of the exhibition profiles the contributors with extensive half-tone photos of exhibits and exhibitors. The exhibition appeared in Paris and London before continuing to New York and San Francisco. This book comes from the collection of June Cashman, longterm costume designer for Yorkshire Television.
