|About the Book|
The Greek statue, the Oriental veiled beauty, the Parisienne, the gypsy, the diva - all these incarnations of women and more are captured in the creations of Emanuel Ungaro. Beginning his career in 1958 as an assistant to Balenciaga, Ungaro was to open his first fashion house in Paris seven years later. Since then, he has exhibited both ready-to-wear and couture collections, each of them representing the height of elegant, sophisticated chic. This is an exploration of his work in fashion.
