London Society Fashion 1905-1925
The Wardrobe of Heather Firbank
The Heather Firbank collection in the Victoria & Albert Museum forms an invaluable record of fashionable Edwardian taste over a period of some 15 years.
Beautifully illustrated with new photography of finely crafted evening gowns, tailored suits and glamorous hats, the book also features contemporary photographs and pages from Heather's own albums of fashion cuttings. It vividly maps out the London couture scene of Edwardian Britain, and charts changes in fashion through the tumultuous first decades of the twentieth century.
Through the story of Heather's own life, both joyous and troubled, this book celebrates the central role of clothing in creating a single woman's identity.
