"Full skirts ruled the runways as did monochromatic collections of white for summer and a return to black for winter. Stefano Pilati skillfully moved the house of Yves Saint Laurent out of the Tom Ford era with a pretty, retro-tinged debut. Meet the most sought-after model of the year, Daria Werbowy, and the most coveted designer, Lanvin's Alber Elbaz. The Metropolitan Museum honors one of the most influential designers in history and the most prolific designer of our time with a Chanel exhibit all the way from Coco to Karl."--Publisher website.
