|Fashion Designers at the Opera|
Helena Matheopoulos (HB)
In her new title, Fashion Designers at the Opera (Thames & Hudson), former fashion editor and Operatic author, Helena Matheopoulos sheds light on the significant relationship between fashion and Opera. Helena touches on the influences each party brings to each other's productions and the work that goes in to the concept behind each piece, including the influence of the music and the set.
Filled with amazing photography, beautiful illustrations and exclusive interviews, the book boasts a grand list of fashion designers including, Christian Lacroix, Gianni Versace, Miuccia Prada and Zandra Rhodes who have created exceptional pieces for productions such as Carmen, Aïda and Capriccio; this title is a wonder.
As enticing for the fashion nut as it is for the Opera enthusiast and the art lover. Great as a coffee table item, but I will be delving in head first, front to back, to really enjoy this title.
