Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I am thrilled that Herve Leger by Max Azria is a part of 1000 Dresses: The Fashion Design Resource. Since I was a child and later as a fashion student and now designer, I have always turned to books and imagery as a source of inspiration and knowledge. This volume is an incredible resource because it provides a historical retrospective of how the dress has played a leading role in fashion and where it is headed for the future. I am proud to be a part of this project." --Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer of BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP
