Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This attractive catalog was published in conjunction with the Costume Institute's commemorative exhibition "Gianni Versace" (December 11, 1997-March 22, 1998) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Martin's solid reputation as a prolific author, art and fashion professor, and curator of the Costume Institute speaks for itself. The text is organized into seven section: the Landmarks, Art, History, Materials, Word and Image, Men, and the Dream. Each section begins with an overview followed by a historical/analytical discussion. These informed discussions provide the intellectual context necessary to understand how Versace's visual references to antiquity, traditional garb such as the sari, and the sleek fashions of the 1920s and 1930s relate to the designer's empowering references to the culture of street prostitutes. First-rate color illustrations enliven the text, and a brief bibliography concludes the volume. Warmly recommended for public, academic, and specialized libraries.P. Steven Thomas, Central Michigan Univ. Lib.
