Book Excerpt : In this magnificent COLLECTION of the most iconic dresses of the twentieth century, Valerie Steele flexes her curatorial muscle. From Poiret to Pucci, Doucet to Dior, Vionnet to Valentino, she selects the 100 dresses that caused a stir on the runway or as they entered a room and ultimately inspired a new direction in fashion. Steele's selections include Fortuny's streamlined Delphos gown circa 1907, Madame Grès's sublimely draped goddess creations from 1938, Issey Miyake's 1982 evening ensemble with a rattan top that appeared on the cover of ArtForum, and Hussein Chalayan's awe-inspiring table skirt from 2000. The COLLECTION, while certainly subjective, is sure to receive nods of recognition, along with a gasp (or two) of surprise.
