Fashion designer Loris Azzaro embodied an era. His fashion house, founded in Paris in 1967, was known for visionary silhouettes, slinky silk jerseys, daring cut-outs, and ornate beading and embroidery. Starting with his wife and muse Michelle, Azzaro (b. Tunisia, 1933; d. Paris, 2003) created clothes for beautiful women - among them Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch, Marisa Berenson, Isabelle Adjani, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, and Nicole Kidman. His style was seductive and modern, imbued with audacity and Parisian elegance. He created both mens' and womens' collections, and became well known for his perfumes. Filled with interviews with people who knew and worked with Azzaro, this sumptuous new book focuses on themes important to the designer: style, inspiration, contemporaneity, perfumes, and family. The stunning illustrations include photographs from the Azzaro archives by Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and other well-known fashion photographers, as well as magazine covers from Vogue, Elle, and more. "‘MY DRESSES are made for women to put on, and men to take them out.' So said the celebrated designer and stylist Loris Azzaro. Now, Abrams has produced this fabulous book to celebrate half-a-century of Azzaro clothes being worn by the world's most beautiful women. It's packed with photographs from the archives, including shots by Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and many more, and captures the designer at his flamboyant best." Daily Mail "Over the course of 190 pages, you'll lift the veil on one of the clothing industry's most iconic and innovative figures, Loris Azzaro. Discover the sculptural, sensual and inimitable style which revolutionised the face of fashion." Sew Magazine "As well as interviews with the people who knew the designer best, Azzaro: Fifty Years of Glitter includes an indulgent selection of images by photographers, such as Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin." Luxury London "For people who are interested in fashion, this is a wonderful essay into the life of a man who set out to please rather than to shock. For anyone else, like me, it's another beautiful collection of photographs of the rich and famous dressed in finery designed by one of the world's greatest designers." Books Monthly
