Costume design in the movies – Elizabeth Leese


An Illustrated Guide to the Work of 157 Great Designers with 177 Illustrations by Elizabeth Leese. The back of this book says, “This handsome book, the first comprehensive reference work on costume design in films, is a remarkable tribute to the men and women who “dress” a film. Substantially revised and updated, it not only presents a splendid record of costume designers’ contributions to cinema but also those of some of the world’s great couturiers. The heart of the book is an illustrated listing, arranged alphabetically be designer, providing biographical and career data (screen credits, major awards and nominations) for every major American, British and French designer who worked on American and British films between 1909 and 1987. Among the designers are such luminaries as Adrian, Travis Banton, Edith Head, Christian Dior, Orry-Kelly, Givenchy, Jean Louis, Howard Greer, Helen Rose, Norman Hartnell, Irene Sharaff, Walter Plunkett, Charles LeMaire, Tony Walton and Ann Roth. Their creations are featured in over 170 photographs and design renderings reproduced on high quality coated stock. Also included is an invaluable index containing titles of 6,000 films, cross-indexed by designer, along with over 400 new film credits covering the period 1976 – 1987.
