The Rise of Fashion and Lessons Learned at Bergdorf Goodman

Ira Neimark

Published: OCT 11, 2011

From lavish events attended by high-profile personalities such as Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher, Jacqueline Onassis, and Yves Saint Laurent to the latest creative ventures of Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, and Donald Trump, Ira Neimark, the legendary leader of fashion luxury retail, recounts how he and his talented fashion and merchandising team brought Bergdorf Goodman to its leadership position—an approach, he shows, that continues to inform the most successful designers and business leaders today. While his personal anecdotes focus on how and why Bergdorf helped build the fashion industry during one of the most exciting periods in its history—the late sixties through the early nineties—the author also shares his views on how contemporary retailers have increased profits by skimping on service, resulting in the loss of customer loyalty. The Rise of Fashion and Lessons Learned at Bergdorf Goodman is a valuable resource for anyone who aspires to succeed in the business of luxury fashion.

Fashioning Society

A Hundred Years of Haute Couture by Six Designers

Karl Aspelund

Published: MAY 04, 2009

The hundred years of fashion from the 1860s to the 1970s was a time when a succession of haute couture designers—most notably, Charles Worth, Paul Poiret, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent—were the arbiters of fashion, and their creations the weapon of choice for power-seeking members of the aristocracy and upper class. Fashioning Society explores the ways in which high-fashion designers and their maisons influenced—and were influenced by—the fine arts as well as sociological, technological, philosophical, and political developments. By addressing the question, "What has happened to high-fashion design?" the author discusses what readers should consider when trying to understand and predict long-term trends.

20th-Century Dress in the United States

Jane Farrell-Beck and Jean Parsons

Published: APR 09, 2007

The 20th Century was a fast-paced race into modernization—but how did it affect what we wear? From revolutionary politics to the new machine age, from war and depression to growth and prosperity, 20th-Century Dress in the United States shows how fashion goes hand-in-hand with history. The authors examine American dress from 1898 to 2004 and find innovation at every turn. Diversity and complexity are key: far from the fashion stereotypes embodied by popular ideas of "the Twenties" or "the Sixties"—periods noted for their youthful upheaval and influence—we see how every era has its conformists and rebels, from the Arrow Collar Man and the Gibson Girl to flappers, bell-bottom-clad hippies, and Jackie Kennedy. Each chapter explores the social, cultural, economic, artistic, and technological themes that shape fashion in both festive and everyday clothing. Changes in retailing and manufacturing are also examined, from the sweatshops of yesterday to the Internet shopping of today. From high fashion to low, glitz to grunge, this vivid and comprehensive book explains what we wear on our backs—and why.

WWD Illustrated


Michele Wesen Bryant

Published: OCT 22, 2003

Since the publication of its first edition in 1910, Women’s Wear Daily has long been considered the bible of fashion. From 1960 to 1991, illustration was prominently featured in this daily report. Fairchild’s staff of illustrators was able to capture the spirit of the moment—be it glamour, the space age, naiveté, or exotica. The illustrations were not necessarily meant to sell the fashion, but rather to comment on it and predict consumer reaction. WWD Illustrated: 1960s–1990s is a comprehensive volume that celebrates the Fairchild artists’ contribution to fashion.
