From the romance of its evolution to the splendor of its design, the wedding dress is unlike any other garment—a talisman from a fantasy world, the manifestation of dreams coming true. This book showcases photographs, letters, memoirs, and newspaper accounts to explore the history of the white wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it from 1700 to today, when designers from Vera Wang to Vivienne Westwood continue to challenge the aesthetic. The Wedding Dress is not only about costume, but also about the cultivation of the image of the bride.
