From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a century’s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limited-edition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum’s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.

In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museum’s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.

How I Brought Good From A Bad Online Publishing Experience

This is now my third short subject book (Approx. 4,472 words in length), regarding a negative publishing experience I have had on the world wide web, that I was eventually able to glean positive things from. While I have written about other similar experiences in past books, this is my first time for relating this particular one. I will not be referring to any websites by name, as I provide some details regarding my experience. There are many writers for content websites and those who are publishing their self-authored eBooks who have at-times, experienced the bad side of dealing with online business entities, just as I have. For many, this results in them putting a halt to their efforts in attempting to publish successfully because they literally feel as if they have hit a wall that hinders their ability to grow as aspiring writers. This is especially true when they have several bad experiences with e-commerce publishing companies, which can leave them with a bad impression in-general, toward businesses that are within this field. It is my opinion, that just about any negative online experience in publishing, can present positive possibilities and certainly not all publishing opportunities are potentially negative because many have great potential and are offered by highly ethical companies. With this said, it sometimes requires honest-but-shrewd thinking and a determination to move forward regardless of any setbacks that might be experienced by developing authors. Much of what I relate within the headings of this book, is in regard to a content website I previously wrote for that is actually reputable and that does display a high level of online quality. My experience with the site CEO/owner, does not necessarily detract from the aspects they have gained toward positive online presence. It does however, demonstrate the fact that authors/writers who contribute to them, are not always recognized for the essential part they may play in building and sustaining their visitor-traffic via their published articles. When content contributors recognize a downward trend in treatment from the administration of websites they enter into contract with, they should seriously consider taking some degree of action to overcome it, as an obstacle to their own growth as authors. Over time, this can make a difference within the field of content websites in-general, who should be willing to offer contracts/agreements that are reasonably beneficial to writers and treatment toward them that is reasonably fair for their hard work. Certainly content websites should also protect their own interests and should be recognized for having the authority to correct their contract contributors and to also reprimand them when it becomes necessary. If such a relationship becomes unreasonably imbalanced in the favor of either party, the slighted party should be prepared to seek resolution to the problem. In-short, I believe it is important for sincere writers to move forward from negative experiences they may have in regard to online publishing, which is the subject of this book. It is my sincere hope that the personal experience I relate within the headings that follow and the advice I add to my related experience, will offer a bit of positive inspiration to my fellow online publishers, who are simply seeking to enter into honest relationships with ethical e-commerce companies. HEADINGS: 1. My First Experience as an Editor for a High Traffic Website 2. A Misspelling in the Same Article that Granted Me Editorship 3. A Legitimate Correction Request with an Insulting Attitude 4. When Unnecessary Venting Takes Over Professional Etiquette 5. Basic Standards in Business Practice are Obvious (No Surveys Required) 6. The Apple Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree 7. The Dark Cloud with the Silver Lining 8. Things I Recommend for Aspiring Authors Considering Content Website Work

Dressing for success is part of an everyday reality for all women in all walks of life. When faced with the overwhelming array of clothes offered in large stores, one is often besieged by self-doubt and in need of a strong hand to help develop that elusive quality called taste.

Enter Secrets of a Fashion Therapist from renowned Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich, who has dressed everyone from 12-year olds and their young mothers to media stars and grand dames. Sharing her impeccable, on-target fashion sense, Betty dispenses wisdom, humor, and advice on how to enhance natural beauty, build a more confident self-image, and most of all, have more fun getting dressed.

Betty first gives the reader a privileged look into the fashion world by taking her on a walk through Bergdorf Goodman, the famed specialty store. Along the way, Betty will explain how to shop like a professional in an enormous store (especially where the clothes seem too pricey, and the sales associates too haughty), deal with the limits of the ubiquitous dressing room, most effectively use a personal shopper, and utilize the general sales force of a specialty store.

With tips, magnificent pen-and-ink drawings, and tried-and-true methods that have remained infallible since the book's initial printing in 1997, Secrets of a Fashion Therapist teaches readers how to dress for all settings, from the workplace to cocktail hour to walking your dog. While broadening readers' attitudes towards fashion, Betty Halbreich will help women create a tasteful wardrobe that has "you" written all over it.
