Wedding Dress, The 300 Years of Bridal Fashion

Author: Edwina Ehrman Format: Paperback Release Date: 05/05/2014

Published in paperback to accompany a major V&A exhibition, this sumptuous book draws on wedding garments in the V&A's collection, photographs, letters, memoirs, newspaper accounts and genealogical research to explore the history of the wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it since 1700. It focuses on the white wedding dress, which became fashionable in the early nineteenth century and is now chosen by women across the world. The book considers the way couturiers and designers have challenged and refreshed the traditional white dress and the influence of the wedding industry, whose antecedents lie in the commercialization of the wedding in Victorian Britain. The Wedding Dress is not only about costume, but also about the cultivation of the image of the bride. This book is a glorious tribute to an exquisite, stylish, glamorous gown, the romance of its evolution and the splendour of its design. Accompanies the V&A exhibition, The Wedding Dress: 1775-2014 from 3 May 2014 to 25 January 2015
