Review: The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957

User Review  - Anita Clarke - Goodreads

Great little introduction to the world of Couture back then. I particularly like the chapter on the textile manufactures and their place in the system. It's not discussed often so it was great to read those insights Read full review

Review: The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957

User Review  - Heila - Goodreads
