House of Fashion: Haute Couture and the Modern Interior

By Jess Berry

The interior design of a couture house is the reflection of its aesthetics and taste. The Maison de Couture of Charles Frederick Worth, which opened in 1858, was the perfect example of how a brand displayed its style through their interior. Fashion and Interior design work as a pair and House of Fashion perfectly depicts how they have and continue to function as a site of performing modern, gendered identities for designers and their customers.

This book will take you to the world of the luxury fashion and show you the crucial role of the salon, the atelier and the boutique with the help of photographs, drawings, advertisements, paintings and illustrations.
