Just as haute couture inspires ready-to-wear apparel, today's avant garde styles develop into tomorrow's everyday fashions. This collection features two dolls and 22 ahead-of-their-time costumes, from dramatic and influential creations by longtime industry giants such as Dior, Chanel, and Saint Laurent to extravagant ensembles by latter-day designers, including Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen.
