Norman Hartnell (1901-1979) was a uniquely British genius. For nearly sixty years he was a major personality in the world of fashion. By the mid 1930s, Hartnell's meteoric rise to fame resulted in London becoming a centre of style that closely rivalled Paris. Known for glamorous evening clothes, Hartnell augmented his early design successes by creating a series of stunning wedding dresses for his younger society clientele. His bridal extravaganzas culminated in the romantic 1947 wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Prince Philip. While Hartnell clients included members of the English upper class as well as the best-known stage and film actresses of the time, it was his royal patronage that assured him a place in history. The famous White Wardrobe created for Queen Elizabeth (and photographed by Cecil Beaton) in the late 1930s changed her image forever; the extraordinary coronation robes designed for Elizabeth II in 1953; and the sublimely simple wedding dress he made for Princess Margaret when she w

I have to admit when I opened this book I got a suprise as it's totally different from other fashion books I have. From the cover you might expect a lot of good quality images of Norman Hartnell's dresses and a detailed overview of his career. What you get instead is a scrap book that covers Hartnell's entire career in clippings. There's some really unique items here that you won't find elsewhere in books on Hartnell...but having said that many of the images are also of very low quality and grainy due to their period sources from newspapers and magazines etc.

This book is a must for any lover of Hartnell's fashions, but it's frustrating if you want to see details of the acutal gowns. While some are illustrated 90% of the book is reproductions of images that relate to gowns Hartnell's clients had reproduced in the popular media. Like another friend of mine who saw the book and commented that they thought it was "flat" I have to agree unfortunatly. It's full of unique images that frustrate because you know you'll probably never see them in better quality than in this book...and the quality leave much to be desired.

This huge, gorgeous book is an invaluable examination of the career of Queen Elizabeth II's favorite couturier, Norman Hartnell. He worked from the 1930's through the 1970's, but had his greatest fame during the early years of the Queen's reign, when she wore his dresses and gowns on numerous occasions (her coronation gown was one of his designs). Truly spectacular photographs and artwork, including many of his original design sketches. Very much commended to anyone with an interest in British fashion specifically and classic fashion in general.
