V&A Publications This book presents a stunning selection of the fabrics which clothed the smart women and furnished the stylish interiors of Europe and America during the age of the Ballets Russes and jazz. The Paris 1925 Exhibition brought the richly exotic designs of Paul Poiret and Raoul Dufy to worldwide attention and the fabrics pictured here trace the Art Deco style as it evolves from its initial vibrant blossoming to a more geometric, avant-garde look. The V&A's collection of Art Deco textiles encompasses luxury silks, handblock printed pieces and functional man-made synthetics, and this overview provides an invaluable resource and introduction to a particularly lively and popular period of textile design.
