Thames and Hudson Scarf Exhibition

Thames and Hudson have just released a new book titled 'SCARVES'  and we popped down for the press release at the Brick Lane Gallery. 

Grays Dealers Gillian Horsup, June Victor-Vintage Modes and Linda Bee all made an appearance and there were some fantastic scarves on display.

The blurb:

'Indispensable accessories and sought-after collectors’ items, scarves were an important innovation in 20th-century fashion. From Art Deco through 1950s Hollywood, the Swinging Sixties and beyond, scarves have been represented in every major decorative arts movement over the past century and into the present one.
This marvellously illustrated compendium showcases the work of a wide range of international designers: Paul Poiret, Elsa Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Mary Quant, Gucci, Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent, Zandra Rhodes, Nicole Miller, and many more. Here are more than 250 scarves, beautifully reproduced in colour and all specially photographed, and many never before seen in print.
• Includes concise biographies of more than fifty scarf designers, retailers and manufacturers, and a resource guide provides expert advice on dating and conservation, museum collections, vintage fairs and specialist dealers.
