LOUIS ICART Art Book contains 35 Art Deco reproductions of early 20th century French fashion, theater and romance.
Louis Icart was born in Toulouse, France. He began drawing at an early age, and was particularly interested in fashion. He became famous for his sketches almost immediately. Icart worked with the couturiers with major fashion shows in Paris. He quickly learned the basics of designing gowns, dresses and miscellaneous essentials of the feminine wardrobe. There was a significant transition from the nineteenth to the twentieth century fashion. Women wanted clothes that clung to their bodies rather than bellowing out. The new look was so appealing that most fashion houses adapted it according to their own tastes. Icart illustrated with the new trend.
