              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. Fashion in Film 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.

              Philip Guston remains a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century American painting. Written by Musa Meyer--Guston's daughter and president of the Guston Foundation--this book brings Guston's life and his hugely rich and diverse output together into one succinct volume. ...Split into three sections covering Guston's early career, his mid-century Abstract Expressionist work, and his controversial but now hugely influential late period, and with more than 100 images of Guston's work (including both paintings and drawings), this offers a complete introduction and overview of a mercurial figure.

              Pattern making, patternmaking, pattern cutting or flat patterning, are all words that describe the process of creating a two-dimensional diagram or template of a garment, drafted on a flat surface from either body measurements or transferred from a draped muslin. The starting poi...nt of a pattern is a sloper. Slopers are basic patterns that are drafted containing a certain amount of wearing ease for the wearer's comfort and are created without seam allowances. Slopers are used as the foundation or template for creating design variations that are subsequently cut and sewn in fabric. In this book you will start by learning how to create a sloper for a basic sleeve before moving on to collars, bodices, skirts, and trousers. Each lesson in the book is illustrated in meticulous detail in a series of step-by-step photographs accompanied by charts, diagrams, and photos from the catwalk. Videos to accompany this book are available at www.universityoffashion.com.
