The first book dedicated to the career and creations of esteemed fashion designer Norman Norell, the man hailed as the "Dean of American Fashion" by the New York Times. Norman Norell (1900-1972) - the first American designer to employ couture techniques, refined workmanship, and luxurious fabrics - made dresses, coats, and suits that critics deemed "the equal of Paris", earning him the sobriquet "the American Balenciaga" and forever changing perceptions about New York's Seventh Avenue garment industry. Norell showed the world that American design could climb to great heights by producing collection after collection that was both elegant and practical. He singlehandedly shaped the character of the ready-to-wear industry and served as a role model to younger generations of American designers. Early jobs included creating costumes for film and stage and outfits for the stars themselves, as well as working for fashion entrepreneur Hattie Carnegie. Norell brought to the world a lean sophistication and American glamour in his daytime suits, jersey separates, swing coats, and his shimmering sequined "mermaid" dresses. Clients included Lauren Bacall, Babe Paley, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Lena Horne, Dinah Shore, Marilyn Monroe, and Lady Bird Johnson. Norell was the first thoroughly modern American designer - and his dresses are still prized by stylish women today.
