Adrian
ADRIAN: The Couture Years, 1942-52
Los Angeles: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1995

11" high x 8" wide. 8 pp; illustrated with three b/w photographs. Accordion-folded single sheet. A fine copy. Exhibition guide from the LA County Museum's Adrian exhibit from August 17, 1995 to January 7, 1996. Scarce. A sampling of what followed appears in "Adrian: The Couture Years, 1942-52,". Co-curators Cara Varnell and Kaye Spilker show only a few of the late designer's film costumes amid more than 40 dresses, gowns and suits meant for everyday women. The clothes bear the Adrian signatures familiar to his film-going fans: extraordinary tailoring, beautiful beading and an enduring love for the most American of fabrics, gingham. Also evident are his humor - dinner dresses printed with farm animals, for example - and his love of lavish gowns modeled after historical costumes.
