Claire McCardell: redefining modernism
Harry N. Abrams, 1998 - 151 ページ
This is the first biography of fashion designer Claire McCardell (1905-1958), the pioneering creator of American sportswear. When other designers were slavishly copying Paris couture, McCardell insisted on clothes for an American lifestyle: useful, wearable, and affordable.Kohle Yohannan and Nancy Nolf show how McCardell's "comfort first" ideology fostered pride and belief in American fashion. Her design inspiration drew from the pages of her own life -- she loved sports and the freedom of men's clothing -- and she disdained shoulder pads, corsets, and heavy construction in favor of self wrap-and-tie styles. She preferred ordinary fabrics to more expensive ones, believing that "clothes should be useful".In this illustrated tribute to a great American designer, McCardell is pictured wearing her own clothes, and specially commissioned photographs of McCardell garments from the archives of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology reveal her subtle craftsmanship. This publication coincides with an exhibition opening at FIT in October 1998.

Review: Claire Mccardellユーザー レビュー - Molly Gove - Goodreads
claire mccardell gets 5 stars and this book is fine, but it is too bad that it is the only one and it is very much a companion to an exhibit kind of book. wish there were more photographs of her work and more of her story. it's sort of fluffy, but i am glad to have it. レビュー全文を読む
