About the book
Two enormously popular subjects—dazzling jewelry by Tiffany's designers and fabulous fashion photography—combine in the newest book by Tiffany design director John Loring, author of many resplendent volumes about American style seen from the vantage point of the preeminent purveyor of fine jewelry and other luxury goods. Fashion experts credit Coco Chanel and her “little black dress” of 1924 with bringing fashion into modern times. But it took great fashion photography by notables from Steichen to Hiro, and jewelry as the ultimate fashion accessory, to propel fashion on its way to becoming the star-studded industry it is today. Tiffany in Fashion is a veritable visual feast—with 250 glamorous images tracing the simultaneous growth of fashion photography and fine jewelry, from Richard Avedon's society fashion portrait for Harper's Bazaar of Elizabeth Taylor's bare back bedecked in exquisite Tiffany cultured pearls, to Scavullo's photograph of Paloma Picasso wearing her amply scaled gold earrings and bracelet, polygonal amethyst ring, and chrysophase bracelet. Eleanor Lambert, the “godmother of American fashion,” and dean of American fashion designers James Galanos add their personal reminiscences to John Loring's engaging and informative text.
