“The influence of Surrealism on fashion and its ancillary arts lasted decades longer than the movement itself. This catalog, accompanying a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, explores the extravagances of visual language as social and political comment, a revolution in perception.”–The Library Journal.
“The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion’s imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.”
