The Dress Hardback Book

100 Iconic Moments in Fashion

Megan Hess is a renowned fashion illustrator who works with the most prestigious international fashion brands and designers, including Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cartier and Givenchy. Her work has a unique style and is instantly recognisable, the epitome of elegance and sophistication. Drawn with a pen, the sweeping strokes and bold lines of her images evoke a bygone era of glamour and haute couture.

In this book Megan has collected her own favourite drawings of dresses and grouped them into categories: Designers, Icons, Weddings, Music, Film and Oscars. From Versace to Prada, Michelle Obama to Kate Moss, the rich and famous are represented at their very best. Elizabeth Taylor and Vera Wang are among the standout participators in the Wedding category, Tina Turner and Jennifer Lopez appear among the superlative stars included in the Music section, and Grace Kelly and Nicole Kidman are among the great and the good in Film and Oscars. Each image is accompanied by a description written by Megan Hess.

The drawings are deceptively simple, embellished with minimal colour and in perfect taste. Anyone who loves fashion, glamour and the glittering world of the most famous and successful stars of our time will love this beautifully produced book.

… of all the dresses I’ve drawn, there are a select few that stand out from the rest, dresses so remarkable that they are more than just a garment: they define a moment in time… This book is a celebration of all the dress that have made my heart sing – some ridiculous, some shocking and some so beautiful they literally took my breath away. Megan Hess

The book cover features a classic Chanel illustration and is embellished with gold foil. Inside the glossy pages are filled with illustrations on high quality paper with gold foil page edges.

This is a book for anyone who loves fashion and clothes, and for anyone who enjoys wonderful design. It makes a lovely gift for Christmas, Mother’s Day or a birthday.
