THE ART OF DRAPING L’art des drapés

Thanks to Nils-Christian Ihlen-Hansen’s experience as a renowned pattern-drafter, this book tackles the difficult technique of the draped clothes in the Western culture of fashion. Plays on transparency, moving of fabrics and of bodies all take an important part in this subtle exercise. Giving to the pattern-drafting of the garment all its nobility by its cutting technique, its choices of prestigious fabrics and the dexterity it requires, the draping technique transforms the garment into an artwork ; thus it becomes a style exercise praised and put forward by the most important figures of fashion.

The grammar of Western clothing COVER IT UP ! First volume of our Grammar of Western clothing. Men – and women - have always wrestled with the elements to protect themselves from cold or hot weather and shield against rain or snow. Though they may have wished to flatter their physique for esthetic purposes, they were obliged to invent and adapt clothes for their everyday circumstances. The shapes, functions and details which appeared over the centuries defined a rich wardrobe, often forgotten in modern times. This "Grammar of Western Clothing” gives an overview of the codes and characteristics of typical garments from yesterday and today. In this first volume, we explore the blousons, raincoats, habits, coats and jackets which… Cover us up ! 20 X 28 144 pages

WEARING THE TROUSERS Second volume of our Grammar of Western clothing. We continue this "Grammar of Western clothing" with the rules, codes and characteristics of clothing from the past and the present. Historically linked to the men’s fashion wardrobe, breeches and trousers have, more recently, seduced and become a part of women’s fashion as well. They originally wore them for sport activities but also when they replaced men at their jobs during wartime. Women adopted trousers as a key part of their wardrobe for their practicality and representation of women’s social evolution and even their independence. Breeches, pants for leisure wear and tailored trouser shapes, functions and details followed this direction, establishing a timeless wardrobe and defining a rich language that is often forgotten today. In this second book, breeches and trousers deliver their secrets to illustrate this social evolution since today, both men AND women are… Wearing the Trousers ! 20 X 28 128 pages

KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON ! Give the shirt off your back, don’t lose your shirt, keep your shirt on, change your shirt, a stuffed shirt... these colloquial expressions show that, over the years, the shirt was considered to be a garment intimately linked with everyday living. Worn next to the body but visible, the shirt had two important roles : hygiene and protection for the body and indicating social status. Always accessorized or accompanied by a vest, the shapes, fabrics and embellishments of shirts, blouses and bodices have evolved to become part of a coded wardrobe that defines a rich vocabulary, often forgotten in modern times. This premise is the basis for the third book in our "Grammar of Western clothing" series which illustrates the rules and characteristics typical of garments from yesterday and today. To read this book, relax and take off your jacket to discover shirts, blouses, bodices and vests... but keep your shirt on ! 20 X 28 144 pages

SENT OF DRESSES Corsets, panniers, crinolines or bustles are words that no longer have significance today. But at various times throughout the history of clothing, women wore these essential pieces under their dresses and often needed help to put them on. Depending on the fashions of each period, certain parts of the body were highlighted as elements of seduction (a tiny waist, extremely wide hips, an exaggerated bottom,…). Women sought what they believed to be an ideal of perfection while obeying the strict, often extravagant codes of Fashion and social norms. It was the events surrounding World Wars I and II and then the Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1970s that finally introduced dresses which did not restrict the body. But even today, dresses still assert a woman’s femininity. Every woman has at least one precise memory of a dress that marked a key event in her life and was intrinsically associated with her joy of pleasing others ! 20 X 28 144 pages

As much a history of Manufacturing and Ready-to-wear as a family saga, this book recounts the path of tailor Alexis Lavigne, a formidable visionary who cleverly constructed the technical foundations of Fashion. As an innovator, Alexis Lavigne dedicated himself, throughout his life, to analyzing the human body so as to advance and promote Paris fashion, especially thanks to his inventions which included the tapemeasure and the dress form. By opening his workshop and then transforming it into a school, this humanist launched what would become Paris’ oldest fashion school. Here is the little-known story of a school that was perpetuated, first by his descendants, then by those dedicated to his spirit. 170 years of innovation at the service of Elegance and Well-Being ! 21.5 X 27 160 pages
