The Golden Age of Couture
The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-57 by Claire Wilcox (2007) V&A Books
Welcome to the remote world of couture in Paris, and London, from its post-war rebirth with Dior's 1947 collection to his early death a decade later. Dior, the showman and master of spectacle, is the hero of this book, although his reticent rival Balenciaga is properly admired, alongside confrères Jacques Fath, Jean Desses and Pierre Balmain.

Goddess The Classical Mode
Goddess: The Classical Mode by Harold Koda (2003) Yale University Press

Published in conjunction with an exhibit of the same name at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, this elegant book traces the image and incarnations of a "goddess" through art, illustration, photography and fashion. From sculptures and paintings of women in classic softly draped gowns to fashion that dates from 1922 to 2001 - a stylish reminder of the cyclical nature of the fashion industry.

Icons of Mens Style
Icons of Men's Style by Josh Sims (2011) Laurence King

This hefty book examines, garment by garment, the most important and iconic menswear items from throughout history to the present day - think images of Tom Cruise sporting aviator sunglasses in Top Gun or 007 dressed to kill in a classic dinner suit.
