Madeleine Vionnet

Madeleine Vionnet
By Pamela Golbin , 304 pages , Rizzoli international publications inc

Madeleine Vionnet is a legendery french designer .I admire her work so it seems normal for me to buy this book.It talk about her life , how she start ,  the Vionnet house , her creation and some more personnal drama .I could say it's mostly a complete biography.

What I like
It cover mostly all her life from where she's from , her creations and some very private moment of her life like the the lost of her child.

After reading this I had the impression to really know who is Madeleine Vionnet . I guess I  could say the biography is well done.

There is  a lot of  pictures of her work , some original black and white,color pictures and even sketchs .It's a delight for the eyes.This book really talk about the artist and her motivations.

What I didn't like
I didn't have a lot to say here.I maybe just wish to know more about what happend to the Vionnet house when Madeleine retired.I think the name was buy but I'm not sure.

You will find lot of picture but no pattern. For that , look at Pattern of fashion from Janet Arnold.
