Fashion in Film
Edited by Adrienne Munich

"A stunning look at the enduring fascination of what to wear in the dream
world that is film." ‹Elizabeth Wilson, author of Adorned in Dreams

The vital synergy between dress and the cinema has been in place since the
advent of film. Broaching topics such as vampires, noir, and Marie
Antoinette looks, Fashion in Film uncovers the way in which the alliance of
these two powerhouse industries use myriad cultural influences‹shaping
narrative, national identity, and all points in between. Contributor essays
address international films from early cinema to the present, drawing on the
classic and the innovative. This abundantly illustrated collection reveals
that fashion in conjunction with film must be understood in a different way
from fashion tout simple.
