Haute Couture; Notes On Designers and Their Clothes in the Collections of the Royal Ontario Museum, by Katharine B. Brett, 1969, black and white illustrations, 68 pages. LCC: TT505 A1 R69 1969


This publication represents a brief biographical sketch of outstanding European and American couturiers represented in the Costume Collection of the Royal Ontario Museum. Whenever possible their contributions to trends and styles of the twentieth century, and their individual characteristics are noted. The members of The Fashion Group Inc. of Toronto undertook the special project of writing the biographies. With their firsthand knowledge and contacts with designers, and because they have played an important part in building up the Museum's collection of designer clothes, these experts are well qualified to undertake such a project. I am most grateful to them for their contribution and hope that the biographies will provide the student of fashion with ready sources of information
