Book design for Laurence King Publishing

Fashion designers have been involved in movies since the early days of cinema. The result is some of the most eye-catching and influential costumes ever committed to film, from Ralph Lauren’s trend-setting masculine style for Diane Keaton in Annie Hall to Audrey Hepburn’s little black Givenchy dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

In his first book, Christopher Laverty (of the Clothes on Film blog) celebrates the contributions of fashion designers to cinema, exploring key garments, what they mean in context of the narrative, and why they are so memorable. Illustrated with beautiful film stills, fashion images and working sketches, this book will appeal to lovers of both fashion history and cinema.
